Mayor Bill de Blasio on Monday said that he’s “real concerned” about the alarming recent uptick of subway push attacks on city rails — and that the NYPD is beefing up its presence to address the matter.

“We’ve got to make sure that New Yorkers have confidence that they can go and use the subway and know that help will be there for them,” de Blasio said during a City Hall press briefing when asked about the disturbing trend of subway shovings.

“The NYPD will be increasing its presence in the subways. That will be very visible,” he promised.

De Blasio did not provide details on how many officers will be moved into the city’s subway system, but did note that mental health efforts will also be boosted.
