Read NYPTA President Bill Carpenter's Testimony here.

Transit service in New York’s urban and rural areas is the lifeblood of economic growth. Transit provides the access and connections that make New York move and the economy flourish.

Downstate, the MTA system is in crisis, needing significant funding to improve service and modernize infrastructure.

Bus systems on Long Island and the lower Hudson Valley are a critical part of the downstate transit system; providing access to the MTA services, serving local transportation needs and reducing regional traffic congestion.

And transit services across upstate New York are a key component to economic and community growth. The public and business are demanding better connections and more service.
