The Subway is falling apart and Access-A-Ride is an embarrassment. Meanwhile billions are spent to extend the 7 line to benefit luxury housing developers.
The MTA, is a “public benefit” corporation funded by bonds held by the richest banks in the world. The primary function of the MTA is not to help 11 million people commute every day; it is to help these bond-holding banks turn a profit. And they do so to the tune of $2 billion every year through tax-free interest that the MTA pays on these bonds.
These meetings are great opportunity to call out the MTA board in front of the media. Come by to speak up for transit for the People.
