What do New York commuters think of Hochul’s National Guard security surge in subways?

New York straphangers seem split on Governor Kathy Hochul‘s plan to surge 750 national guard members and 250 extra MTA police into the transit system, with some telling amNewYork Metro on Wednesday it makes them feel safer while others called it a waste of money.

Hochul charged that she will be supplementing the NYPD with some 1,000 additional state personnel underground in order to perform bag checks in hope of stopping the dissemination of weapons into the transit system.
