Re: MTA Considering Installing Protective Barriers On Subway Platforms

There is also the psychological toll each event takes on the Train Operators. 280 events a year equal hundreds of traumatized people a year. That ends up costing the MTA in medical leave, counseling, and therapy. It all adds up. Over a 30 year career, a TO may see in person multiple people maimed and killed.

Add in those flat spots on the trains' steel tires, the extra wear on the rails due to emergency braking, and service disruptions and you start to see the other costs too.
