Save the Payphone!

This petition had 68 supporters

We want to Save the Payphone.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) plans on removing the remaining payphones still located on subway platforms throughout New York City, but we know that payphones are not yet a thing of the past.

During Hurricane Sandy in 2012, for example, payphones were essential for thousands of New Yorkers who did not have service on their cellular plan! The same was true in the citywide blackout in 2003 when nothing was working but public payphones for two days. 

That’s why we are committed to saving the payphone: so that you can always count on reliable service for any situation. Not only are these phones an important piece of the past but also an important safety measure for those times when wifi is unavailable or if there is an emergency, when internet and cellular service is easily wiped out. 

Want to help us protect the payphones in MTA stations? Please sign the petition!
