An investment in public transit is a commitment to mobility and quality of life for the people of New York State. Public transportation is also essential to economic recovery and growth, keeping riders and communities safe, and essential workers serving the public.
As part of the Transit Moves the Economy campaign, NYPTA collected videos from from our transit members, coalition members, business partners and riders. These videos are intended to highlight the importance of public transit in NYS communities and why it is essential to our NYS communities and economic vitality. We have included some of these videos below. View all the video messages from community members across New York State on the NYPTA YouTube page.
