Testing first began as a pilot program in January 2015 to screen Metro-North Railroad train engineers and now, MTA will make the program permanent at Metro-North and bring it to other agencies in the MTA family, including the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR).

“This program helps us identify workers who may be at risk for sleep apnea, ensure they receive appropriate treatment and ultimately create a safer MTA,” said New Yor, Gov. Andrew Cuomo. “A healthy workforce is crucial to the MTA’s success and, with the expansion of this successful program, we will continue to build a stronger transportation system and keep New York moving forward.”
