A Metropolitan Transportation Authority spokesman said the bedbugs, which were found in seat cushions in train cabs used by conductors, have been exterminated.

MTA spokesman Kevin Ortiz told WABC-TV: “The MTA continues to spot check other crew and passenger areas. They say this is isolated. No crew members or passengers have reported bites by the bedbugs."
