ABSTRACT
The article discusses a report on the New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority's (MTA) security program, released by state comptroller Alan Hevesi. The report claims that the MTA has improved security through operational changes despite the delay in the schedule and the increase in costs. Reasons for the schedule delay include the need for second opinions during the design phase and an emphasis on completing certain projects before others.
