Our transit reporter shares a birthday with the NYC subway system, though Dan Rivoli admits he's a few years younger. A Staten Island native and current Harlem resident, it's fitting that Dan’s favorite city landmark is the Verrazzano Bridge.
Dan joined NY1 in March 2019, with more than a decade of reporting experience under his belt. Dan has covered a variety of topics from the Supreme Court to politics and policy.
When it comes to the transit beat, Dan describes his favorite stories as those that help New Yorkers better understand their commutes, explaining why rides are delayed and disrupted, and how the MTA can be held responsible. Dan connects the dots, like his reporting exposing how the increasing population of homeless New Yorkers seeking refuge in the subway system has resulted in more service disruptions.
Dan is a daily public transit rider, taking trains and buses, even while traveling.
