Support full funding of the MTA capital plan
A modern and reliable regional transit system is essential to New York’s future growth and realizing the goals of OneNYC. Thus, the City strongly supports the full funding of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s (MTA) 2015–19 Capital Plan. As the city’s transit riders, toll payers, and taxpayers already support the much of the MTA’s operations, we will continue to look to every level of government to support the modernization and expansion of New York’s transit system, which is a key economic driver of the downstate New York region.
The City will also work closely with the MTA to identify significant savings and improve operational coordination in areas of common interest, such as bus rapid transit, other bus services, and Access-a-Ride. Any savings we achieve together can be leveraged to create new capital support for the MTA.
