This page is ONLY for submitting requests for copies of records under the Freedom of Information Law (FOIL). If you are not requesting copies of records under FOIL but are only seeking information, use the 'FAQs/Contact Us' link at the top right corner of this page.
You must submit your FOIL request to the appropriate MTA Agency. If you send your FOIL request to the wrong Agency, you will not receive the records you are seeking.
Requests for records under the Freedom of Information Law may now be submitted electronically. Click on the appropriate link below to submit a FOIL Request. A suggested outline for your request will appear in a separate pop-up window.
Many records exist only on paper and cannot be sent back to you via e-mail. It is therefore necessary for you to include your name, address and phone number. Records can be made available for inspection and copying by appointment only, at a location to be determined by the responsible FOIL Officer.
