NYPTA President Carm Basile Calls for Balance in Transit Infrastructure Funding
Funding the infrastructure needs of New York State is a critical component in the economic revival of our communities. Better roads, bridges, rail and bus systems translate into success, growth and prosperity.
State leaders will soon be considering ways to fund the multi-year capital programs for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) and the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT). New resources are needed to fully invest in the state’s transit and highway infrastructure, and the state budget windfall from recent insurance settlements can provide an important jumpstart to this process.
