Yes, I believe glass doors on the platforms in front of the tracks will keep us all safer.
Ray Turbin

Yes, If they cleaned it up a little and more cameras were put around, it would be safer.
Cary Aloise

No, it’s too much money already and they always say there will be improvements but I never see any.
Mohsina Khan

Yes. It’s pretty safe now and there haven’t been any derailments, but I think more cameras would help out a lot.
John Aloise

Yes, safety is a high standard. But in the long run people will appreciate it.
Nazim K.

Yes, because lately there have been a lot of accidents and it would be very helpful. I don’t think people would mind paying for that.
Christopher Khan

Yes, because people have been pushed onto the tracks and sometimes others fall. To make improvements I’m sure they will need more money.
Bella Schaefer

Yes, it’s for improvements. Also, they need to correct the delays and the cleanliness.
