The Metropolitan Transportation Authority has pulled the plug on 450 emergency exit alarms following complaints from riders.

The loud, high-pitched noise can be heard when someone opens the door because they don't want to wait to use a turnstile.

Only exits located near staffed token booths are affected.

The noise will still go off if someone uses an emergency exit that is near an unstaffed booth.
