PCAC Statement – Jan 29, 2015 – Budget Hearing


We appreciate the opportunity to express our views on proposals for the State’s transportation budget and their impact on the MTA. The MTA undeniably has an immense impact on the downstate region, the State, and its citizens. We believe that this impact is, if anything, not fully appreciated, thus over the past year the PCAC, in partnership with the Urban Land Institute – NY, has pursued research aimed at clarifying the broad social and economic impacts that the MTA system has on the region and state.
