            .@MTA Chair Lieber acknowledges riders feel unsafe, stating, "In times of crisis, it is the responsibility of gov't to take action." @NYPDTransit Chief Wilcox commits to keeping riders safe & working closely with the MTA & sharing information.
            It’s great that @LIRR on-time performance is up; we’re hopeful the good OTP and good service will continue when more riders come back. Reliable, fast, safe trips are the best way to entice riders back on board @MTA.
            “Absolutely nobody should be on the tracks unless they’re working in the system, they have safety training, and there’s a good reason for them to be there,”said Lisa Daglian Executive Director of @PCACriders
