An increase in used syringes is also being found amid growing drug use in the subway system.
“Incidents like this are unfortunate. They’re unsanitary for our customers and deeply unfair and disturbing for transit cleaners. They’re also a reminder of the need for more mental health outreach and social service support in the city and throughout the system,” MTA spokesperson Andrei Berman said in a statement to the paper.
