MTA Sustainability Work Group Report is underwhelming.
Clearly the MTA’s fiscal situation is dire, and every funding option must be considered carefully – including, but not only, congestion pricing. Finding efficiencies in the MTA’s organizational structure deserves a close look. We’re disappointed that we did not hear details about aggressive “value capture” options, including recouping funds from Amazon for transit infrastructure funding. This report is a step in the right direction, and we look forward to working closely with our members and the riders we represent to continue the conversation, and with elected officials to enact the legislative reforms necessary to support our vital transit system and keep the New York region globally competitive.
