Elevator and Escalator - Follow Up on Recommendations

MTA/OIG #2012-09

In July 2011, the MTA Office of Inspector General (OIG) released a report, “Ineffective Use of Remote Monitoring Technology for New York City Transit Elevators and Escalators” (MTA/OIG 2011-08) containing our findings and making ten recommendations for improvement, all of which were accepted by NYC Transit. Subsequently, we monitored the progress made by NYC Transit’s Elevator and Escalator department in implementing those recommendations.

Our follow up report explains that the department initiated action on all ten recommendations; however, five recommendations remain unresolved.
