NYC Launches Campaign Warning Against Subway Surfing

Following a series of incidents where people have been killed while subway surfing, New York City has begun a campaign to warn of the dangers.

“We cannot endure another tragedy on our trains,” Mayor Eric Adams said.

Officials said that the trend is being driven by videos posted on social media. Young people are seeing those videos and are then encouraged to try subway surfing themselves.

“Through this innovative partnership, young New Yorkers will hear directly from their teachers and peers about the extreme danger of subway surfing, saving lives and preventing more tragedies,” Governor Kathy Hochul said.

The campaign will include public service announcements, posters, ads and digital signs.
