City of New York makes recommendations for MTA subway plan

Posted on July 24, 2017


NEW YORK — With the MTA set to publish a reorganization plan this week, the City of New York and Mayor Bill de Blasio offered the agency recommendations for the agency’s “subway turnaround plan,” demanding that the MTA redirect funds away, if necessary, from “less-critical” investments like aesthetic improvements to bridges and subway stations, amNewYork reports.

With a nearly 200% increase in delays in recent years, the Mayor’s office offered five points — immediate relief for riders; public performance goals and standards; clear accountability for continual improvement; an efficient and fair MTA budget and a reallocation of resources towards core needs; and a meaningful State commitment to the needs of subway riders.

The City said the MTA should be required to present metrics reports, similar the NYPD’s monthly Compstat reports on major crimes at every precinct, to keep the agency accountable for making improvements to the system. The MTA should also be transparent about data, such as how long riders have to wait for trains during rush hour and how many times a train is too crowded. For the full story, click here.
