BROOKLYN - Straphangers and subway workers are rallying to persuade the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) to bring back station agents.

The Transportation Workers Union Local 100 says the lack of station agents is a major security matter. The union is trying to garner more signatures for a petition they plan on sending to the MTA.

A spokesperson for the MTA says the agency is working with the NYPD to make continued progress in fighting crime in the subway system. The spokesperson points out that there are plans in place to install help-point intercoms at more than 18 stations over the next year and a half.
