NEW YORK ––The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) this week announced that New York City Transit (NYCT) will complete upgrades, repairs, and deep cleanings at 13 additional subway stations in the second quarter of 2024 across Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx.

This is part of NYCT’s Re-NEW-vation Program which utilizes planned service outages to perform stationwide repairs, enhancements, and deep cleanings. When regular service returns to the station, customers are met with cleaner and brighter station environments.

During re-NEW-vations, stations are scrapped, primed, and repainted. Lightening fixtures are replaced with new LED lights and added in areas to brighten dark spaces. Benches located on platforms and mezzanines are refinished for customer seating. Outdated signs are removed and replaced where needed with clearer messaging. Cracks are repaired and repaved to prevent tripping hazards. Each station also undergoes repairs specific to each location’s needs including completely rebuilding and rehabilitating stairways, installing new draining systems to prevent flooding conditions during heavy weather events, comprehensive tile work, and extensive track ceiling repairs.   

  • repainted 2.2 million sq. ft. of surfaces
  • replaced 103,930 sq. ft. of wall tiles
  • replaced 4,596 sq. ft. of floor tiles
  • fabricated, installed, and replaced 1,599 metal signs
  • fabricated and installed 243 new decals
  • removed 142 outdated, damaged or unnecessary signs and maps
  • repaired 72 signs and mounted brackets
