Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) of New York City: Stop endangering the safety of women during service disruptions

As violence against women is a serious problem in NYC and all over the USA, it is important that the MTA provide safe alternative routes for female straphangers during any and all service disruptions.

Entirely too many women in NYC end up stranded in unfamiliar locales either very early in the morning or very late at night because the MTA does not provide accurate up-to-the-minute information on alternate routes to their destinations or knowledgeable customer service representative. This poor service not only increases the likelihood of violence against women, it has a disparate effect on technologically illiterate women who cannot properly access information provided on the MTA website through the internet or by use of smartphones.
