NYC to install cameras in subway carsThe Metropolitan Transportation Authority is installing security cameras in all of New York City's subway cars, officials announced on Tuesday.

New York Governor Kathy Hochul, a Democrat, said the cameras would make riders more confident in the safety of the transit system.

The plan is to install two cameras in each of 6,355 subway cars, building on a pilot program that saw cameras installed in 100 cars. The work should be completed by 2025, the MTA said.

The MTA is spending $3.5 million on the installation, and the remaining $2 million needed is through a grant from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Urban Area Security Initiative.

There are already security cameras in the subway system's more than 470 stations, though they do not always work.
