The MTA is cracking down on its drivers.

The agency said it ordered dozens of bus drivers to turn in their keys.

The MTA said it stepped up surveillance of its drivers five weeks ago by having dispatchers pose as passengers.

The agency says the dispatchers cited more than 370 drivers with nearly 420 violations.
