NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- The MTA paid a record $1.2-billion last year in overtime pay.

That's according to the non-profit think tank 'The Empire Center' in a report on its website See Through NY.

They said MTA pay totaled $6.7-billion in 2017, with regular earnings increasing 4 percent, or nearly $200-million.

The bulk of the overtime was paid to New York City Transit Authority workers.

Meanwhile, an audit by New York State Controller Thomas DiNapoli found that poorly run training programs for workers could be causing delays and safety hazards.

The report also found that the MTA is not in compliance in sending train crews for required medical checkups.
