Officials revealed Monday the Metropolitan Transportation Authority general superintendent was regularly flying to his Florida home during the time he was supposed to be on the clock in the Bronx.
According to MTA Inspector General Daniel Cort, from Jan. 2021 through June 2022, the general superintendent who was overseeing maintenance for escalators and elevators in the Bronx claimed to be doing "fieldwork" when travel records show he was on a plane to Florida.
Investigators also found he would occasionally not swipe his ID at the end of his shift and would falsely report his time out to his supervisor.
The inspector general report does not name the employee in the report.
Cort said in part, "Managers who oversee the maintenance of elevators and escalators perform a crucial role and cannot shirk their responsibilities."
He went on to say the general superintendent was terminated from his position for, "failure to perform his duties and for his dishonesty."
