On 9/11, more than 1,000 employees of MTA New York City Transit and MTA Bridges and Tunnels suddenly become First Responders. They helped save many lives, moving thousands of people out of harm's way. Special NYC Transit buses transported rescue workers to the World trade Center site as Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel personnel cleared 287 abandoned vehicles from the tunnel. It quickly became the "Gateway to Ground Zero" for police and emergency vehicles. As New Yorkers pledged to rebuild, the MTA became a vital part of restoring Lower Manhattan. Now, all the tracks, structures and stations are repaired or rebuilt, and newly completed Fulton Center connects five subway stations and eleven subway lines.
The MTA continues to proudly display the name "World Trade Center" on its maps and signage to this very day.
The 9/11 Memorial and Museum are possible only through your support.
