The MTA is tightening its belt again - this time to the tune of more than a thousand layoffs.
The cash-strapped agency is expected to announce a plan to eliminate hundreds of station agents and administrative workers, on Tuesday.
The layoffs will include 450 station agents belonging to Local 100 of the Transit Workers Union.
Officials expect the cuts to save $50 million.
The move is part of the MTA's continuing effort to reel in costs following lower than expected tax revenues and cuts to state aid.
