M.T.A. Rapid Response Plan for Elevators and Escalators

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority plans to spend $1.3 million to hook up more than 300 elevators and escalators in the subways to a computerized monitoring system that would allow it to respond more quickly to breakdowns. The plan is to be submitted this week to the authority’s board for consideration.

 

The monitoring system has been tested on 44 elevators, and officials are seeking to expand it to all of the elevators and escalators in the subway stations “in order to enable a rapid response” to breakdowns, according to an authority board document.

I agree. But they need to add more though, but that would make the problem worse. I think they need to have them checked every week. I'm sure there are a lot of elevator and escalator companies looking for a contract from the MTA.
