Regional Plan Association Statement on MTA Capital Plan Passing the MTA Board

“A modern, reliable and efficient transit network is the backbone of the region’s economy and critical for everyone who lives and works here. The MTA Capital Plan will fund vital improvements for our subways, buses and commuter rail, including signal, station, and accessibility upgrades and better service. Tracking progress and setting goals for these projects and programs, including congestion pricing, is vital to keep the public informed of the enormous benefits. We enthusiastically support the MTA Board’s approval of the plan and look forward to working with the MTA leadership to implement these ambitious projects,” said Tom Wright, CEO and President, Regional Plan Association.
