(WNYC Newsroom) After a recent surge of subway fatalities and injuries, Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer is calling on the MTA to launch a probe into subway safety.

He's pushing for MTA Inspector General Barry Kluger to conduct an in-depth audit of platform accidents.

Stringer says there were 55 subway deaths last year, but there's been an alarming recent spate of death.

By having the inspector general look at the issue, Stringer says, he’s hoping some creative solutions can be found. He thinks everything from sliding doors to new signage should be considered.

In December, two people were pushed to their death on the subway tracks. In recent weeks, one man fell to his death while between subway cars and on Tuesday a man was killed when he jumped into the path of a subway in Times Square.

Stringer is planning a bid for City Comptroller.
