The subways of Queens are already seeing an uptick in crime - but they're about to get scarier.
An NYPD unit that patrols the borough's trains at night is on the verge of closing, the Post has learned - a move critics fear will make Queens subway travel still more dangerous.
The Queens Transit Task Force is to be shuttered on Jan. 5, with its 48 officers merged into the borough's two Transit Districts, sources said.
"Of course they say that it'll be the same manpower that way, but that's b.s.," one police source told the Post. "It's the equivalent of closing a station house."
