The latest data indicates that crime on New York's subway system is still uncommon: approximately 3.8 million trips are made on an average weekday, and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority reported 570 felony assaults throughout 2023.
Shootings are particularly rare: in 2022, a man with a handgun injured 10 people on a train passing through Brooklyn, marking the first mass shooting attack on the subway system since 1984. In May 2022, a man fatally shot 48-year-old Daniel Enriquez on a Q train in what police described as an unprovoked assault.

Riders' perceptions of the dangers remain high, despite declining crime rates. Mayor Eric Adams, a Democrat and former city police captain, has aimed to reassure unsettled commuters by increasing the presence of police officers in subway stations.Open in app
