Keep the Station Agents at Carroll Street!
We, the undersigned, urge Chairman H. Dale Hemmerdinger to stop the closure of the MTA Station Agent Booth at the President Street entrance of the Carroll Street F stop in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. The Carroll Street station is located in a densely populated area of Brooklyn, which translates to a consistently high volume of riders. Commuters and families utilize this station throughout the day. The station agents are necessary to the efficient operation of such heavily used MTA subway stops. In light of the Culver El Viaduct Project, which will close the Smith-9th Street stop for an extended period of time, these station agents will be vital to overseeing the increased ridership at the Carroll Street stop. Furthermore, because of the safety concerns which accompany any major construction projects, having a MTA Agent on site will decrease the chances of any injuries to its ridership. Sincerely, Councilmember Bill de Blasio
