The NY Metro Transit Authority (MTA) announced today that it will be adding a new type of appointment for commuters who need to access services at stations across the city: “council appointments.”
The new appointment types will be available for use at a number of subway stations across New York City.
“This is an important step toward bringing our existing public transportation services into the 21st century,” said MTA Chair and NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio in a statement.
The MTA will begin adding council appointments in late 2018, and will roll out them on a regular basis thereafter. “
We have been working closely with the MTA to ensure that our existing network of transit stations are available to meet the needs of commuters.”

The new appointments will be a great way for commuters and their families to access the subway without a trip to the nearest subway station.
The MTA is currently in the process of making the appointments available for all subway riders in New York.
These appointments will provide a convenient and affordable way for subway commuters to reach their jobs and their favorite places in the city without having to travel far to reach the nearest station.
“For many people, their commute is an hour or two, but for others, it’s a half an hour,” said Mary Ann Meehan, an MTA spokesperson.
“Council appointments provide an easy way for them to reach these jobs, without going out and spending a long time waiting at a station, or even at the airport.”
