NYCT safety vests are standard-issue attire for employees of Rapid Transit Operations (RTO) and MOW departments, among others. They also are worn under certain circumstances by employees of the DOB: anyone who had visited the Grand Avenue CMF Tour sponsored by the Transit Museum in 2008 was required to wear such a vest while on the premises. These vests apparently are manufactured to MTA specifications by an Albany NY-based company called Industries for the Blind of NY State; they are issued only to NYCT employees and can be sold only to official NYCT contractors. However, this company also manufactures many similar fluorescent striped safety vests that are available for purchase by the general public. These items as well as many others are manufactured by blind workers in NY State. Those of you interested in such items might want to check out their website at www.ibnys.com.
