Important!!! MTA and NYPD will target bikes on trains!!!
This was a firsthand account.
Important!!! MTA and NYPD will target bikes on trains!!!
This was a firsthand account.

i was enroute tonite (10pm wed) from danbury to nyc. the conductor asked me for my bike pass and i told him he was the first to ask me that since i bought it months ago. he told me it was a new "crackdown measure" since the WEF was coming and
the cops were telling MTA employees to check on "certain" people coming on bikes.

He said it was because the police said that many people would likely be trying any way to get to the city, especially on bikes.

Then he showed me the MEMO!!! it was given from the NYPD to MTA and then to the conductors. he let me see it and it clearly said for conductors to check for "protesters on bicycles."

can you believe that? we bullshitted some more and that was that.
