Presence of Bedbugs in Subway Scares Riders, Transit Workers – NY1 8/28/14

Posted: August 29, 2014 in Uncategorized

All aboard. Just not the bedbugs.Sixteen subway cars on eight trains have been treated for bedbugs in recent weeks, and riders and transit workers are getting creeped out.”I try to avoid taking the N train, if possible,” said one rider. “I take the D or I can take the F since I found out about the bedbugs because I don’t want none of that coming into my house.”The bulk of the bedbug sightings have taken place on the N, with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority taking those trains out of service once the presence of the nasty critters is confirmed.However, the Transport Workers Union said that’s not enough and wants the entire fleet fumigated before school starts.”The TA is not being proactive. They’re just dealing with it as the situation pops up,” said Joe Costales of TWU Local 100. “We’re asking them to address this proactively so that we can stop the scenario from spreading.”
