Sign the Petition: Governor Cuomo: Make Good on Your Promise to Fund Public Transit!
You may have seen our recent video telling New Yorkers exactly who is responsible for our subways and buses: Governor Cuomo.
After making lots of promises to riders that he would contribute billions to improve New York City’s public transit, Governor Andrew Cuomo went back on his word. In January, he proposed that the State allocate $0 in new funds in this year’s budget to pay for the MTA’s 2015-2019 Capital Program, which funds maintenance, improvements, and expansions to our public transit.
In a recent poll, nearly half of all New Yorkers weren’t aware that the State runs the MTA. But you know who’s responsible for overcrowding and delays. So let Governor Cuomo know you’re holding him accountable for the improvements New Yorkers need to see. And after you’ve signed our petition, share it with your friends—chances are they’re just as fed up as you:
