Subway Emergency Exits Are for Emergencies ONLY

MTA NYC Transit is launching an informational campaign telling customers about the addition of panic bars which will allow them to use normally locked gates in the event of an emergency requiring evacuation from subway stations, but also warning that misusing these gates is against the law.

Workers have recently completed the ambitious installation of alarmed emergency exit push bars on locked station gates throughout the system. The customer-operated gates provide for additional exit capacity in case of an emergency only.
