New York Public Transit System Statement Supporting Governor Cuomo's Efforts for $15 billion for New York State and the Assistance in President Biden's American Rescue Plan

The New York Public Transit Association (NYPTA) shares the challenges New York State faces as a result of the COVID Pandemic and supports the efforts of Governor Cuomo for federal leadership and speedy action to provide relief to states and local governments. The impact of the State's budget crisis and its impact on transit systems cannot be understated as we work to carry essential workers that are so vital to end the pandemic and assist in the recovery of our state's economy.

NYPTA joins with the Governor in asking President Biden and the Congress to provide at least $15 billion from the American Rescue Plan to New York State so that public transit can receive the state funding necessary to support our communities and reopen the economy and supports the Biden plan to provide $20 billion to stabilize public transportation systems nationwide.
