PAST EVENT Thursday November 19 2020

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) is facing its greatest fiscal crisis since its founding in 1968. Deficits for the MTA are projected to total nearly $20 billion by the end of 2024, a vast budget hole dug by vanishing ridership and spiraling costs. Absent generous federal aid, the MTA is looking at deep cuts to service and infrastructure improvements, alongside other draconian measures that threaten to derail New York’s already precious economic recovery in the wake of Covid-19. What are the MTA’s options going forward and how can New York’s transit agency get back on track?

AGENDA:

3:00pm-3:35pm

Interview: MTA on the Rails
