2006 New York Code - Legislative Findings.

    § 215. Legislative findings. The legislature hereby finds and declares
  that  the  state  has  a  responsibility  to insure the safety of public
  transportation systems. Further, there exists a need for an independent,
  investigative and advisory body to examine the causes  of  accidents  on
  public  transportation  systems  and  make  recommendations  in order to
  prevent the occurrences of accidents  and  promote  the  safety  of  the
  public.  Therefore,  this  article  establishes  a public transportation
  safety board to provide this protection and insure the health and safety
  of the citizens of the state who use public transportation facilities.
