24-hour subway service should be legally required, councilman says

NEW YORK — A city councilman hopes to legally require the MTA to run 24-hour service in order to receive funding.

The MTA is jointly funded by the state and city, but Councilman Rafael Espinal plans to submit a legislative request that would require the MTA to run throughout all hours of the day in order to receive funding from the city. His idea follows recommendations from the Regional Plan Association to stop 24-hour service so the MTA can have more time to make needed repairs.
