MTA chair unveils extensive, $836M action plan to fix ailing NYC subway

"New Yorkers are rightfully frustrated with the current state of the subways, and their demands for better service have been heard", MTA Chairman Joseph Lhota said.

Who knows, maybe the MTA will release a comprehensive, actionable plan to bring the New York City subway system into the 21st century come August 1.

The New York Police Department was sent an email that instructed officers to clear homeless people from certain stations to make them "look nice" for Mayor Bill de Blasio's subway ride.

Lhota, who is expected to complete a 30-day review of the subway system this week, has said he will likely ask the city for more funding for needed upgrades.

"Recently the state government has come to the table with a significant amount of investments", he continued, but noted that "several issues have come to a head in recent months" as Amtrak chose to make track repairs around Pennsylvania Station, forcing the MTA to reduce Long Island Rail Road service. Workers will also clean underground tracks more frequently to prevent track fires.

Repairing cars more quickly, and keeping the vehicle fix shop open 24/7 to address issues when needed.

"They own it, they lease it, it's their responsibility to fund it", Lhota said Thursday.

The MTA also plans to implement a pilot program that would remove subway seats from the L and S lines, in order to squeeze an additional 25 riders on each auto. "The greatest act of leadership that riders need from the governor is to set up a source of revenue that will stand the test of time". "I am fully committed to making it a reality". Lhota says the plan addresses a subway system in need of solutions following years of stress by factors including a record volume of customers, aging infrastructure and lack of capital expenditure necessary to grow the system. Phase 2-new signaling systems, new subway cars, and other items that he said would be part of the next MTA Capital Plan-is estimated to cost about $8 billion.

Mayor de Blasio was in an effusive move during a rare ride on the subway July 23 as he criticized Governor Cuomo for not doing more to deal with problems in the transit system. The trip was dubbed as a publicity stunt to press New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D.) to fund the metropolis' transportation network. "Let's see the MTA come forward with a plan, let's see the MTA use the money it has, let's see the state of NY restore the half billion they took out of the MTA budget", the mayor said while riding the F train on Sunday.

This was one of the prime exhibits of the kind of favor-trading Mr.de Blasio and his top aides indulged in with big-bucks campaign donors that earlier this year drew blistering rebukes-but no charges-from both the Manhattan District Attorney's Office and the U.S. Attorney's Office based in the same borough.
