New York City: Enough already—fund the MTA capital plan

Monday, August 24th, 2015

Recently the New York state legislative session ended without the funding of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s desperately needed capital plan. What a shame…The upkeep, integrity, safety and functionality of the MTA affect all New Yorkers. Without the MTA, our economy, upstate and downstate, would simply not be solvent. A large percentage of state revenue can be attributed to the profits, jobs and taxes generated by the transit system. That revenue translates into critical funding and services that benefit every New Yorker.

Under these programs, each station was fully renovated to a state of good repair, including structural and architectural components. Once the work was completed, however, NYCT moved on to the next station for rehabilitation without committing the resources to maintain the renovated stations.
