The MTA's multimillion-dollar plan to lower the number of homeless people on New York subways has been expensive and ineffective, according to MTA Inspector General Carolyn Pokorny's office.
The inspector general's report says that dozens of homeless people stayed on the trains for every one that accepted help.
It also says that incidents involving the homeless population caused 100 delays per month in January and February.
The program cost at least $2.6 million in overtime alone, according to the report.
