PCAC & ULI New York Present: Keeping NY on Track: The Importance of the MTA Transit Network in a Changing World
Date: Wednesday, February 11, 2015
Registration: 8:30 AM- 9:00 AM
Program: 9:00 AM- 10:30 AM
The New York metro area is a vibrant region, knit together by one of the world’s largest transportation networks. The MTA system benefits New Yorkers by sustaining economic strength, social equity, and neighborhood growth in our region. “Keeping NY on Track” broadens awareness of the importance of the MTA Capital Program in maintaining the broad range of benefits that the MTA transit network brings to our region.
However, new challenges, including climate change and shifting ridership patterns, expose our transit network and region to new risks. A renewed commitment from New York State leaders to craft a long-term MTA investment strategy is now more critical than ever.
Please join us for the launch of Keeping NY on Track and a special discussion on the importance of the MTA transit network in securing a vibrant future for our region.
