Statement from TTC CEO Rick Leary
We are all shocked and saddened by the images of this morning’s horrendous attack on commuters in New York’s subway system.
My thoughts, and those of the entire organization, are with the people of New York and our colleagues at the MTA as they deal with the aftermath of this senseless violence.
As always, the safety of our customers and employees is my paramount concern.
Although there is no known threat here in Toronto, TTC Transit Special Constables and Toronto Police are increasing their presence in the system today to provide reassurance to everyone that the TTC remains safe.
We would remind people that if they see anything suspicious, they can report it to any uniformed TTC employee for immediate action.
