Amazon’s investment in the city presents a unique opportunity for transit infrastructure investment.
Joe Lhota provided stability to a transit system in crisis. His leadership and commitment have helped move the MTA in a new direction by building a team whose entire focus is improving the system with recognizable results; he started the road to recovery by highlighting how important transit is to the vitality of the region. Joe understood that the MTA is still a system in crisis – underfunded and under siege – and that investment in the MTA is an investment in the future of New York. As the voice of MTA riders since 1981, we thank him for his service.
