New Beach Signs for Rockaway MTA A-Lines
Additional signs will be installed along the Far Rockaway A-Line to notify beach-goers and Rockaway community members of access and availability to Rockaway Beach.
Assemblywoman Audrey I. Pheffer’s recent letter to the New York City Transit Authority prompted this decision.
“Our Division of Marketing and Service Information is preparing signage that will advise our customers as to which beaches in the Rockaways are now closed and which are available for use by the public,” answered the Transit Authority to the Assemblywoman’s request.
The signs will alert visitors who use public transportation to the Rockaways of restricted use and access.
“Straphangers who utilize the A-Train will greatly benefit from the information on these signs,” Pheffer said.
