On Monday, Metropolitan Transit Authority chair Janno Lieber penned a letter to district attorneys in the New York City area calling on them to enforce an existing law that allows them to ban certain criminals from using public transportation.

Lieber also suggested that the law, which had passed in 2020 under then-governor Andrew Cuomo, was too narrow in its scope, and should be expanded to include more criminals.
