MTA Board Meeting Testimony-Investments in the MTA and Riders

Good morning, I’m Lisa Daglian, Executive Director of the Permanent Citizens Advisory Committee to the MTA, PCAC. Janno, congratulations on your first official Board meeting as Chair, and welcome Commissioner Velez. We look forward to working with you.

Today you will be voting on a number of contracts that will support, maintain and improve the system for riders on subways, buses, the Long Island Rail Road and Metro-North. They include supporting the second phase of the Second Avenue Subway, improving connecting services for Metro-North, maintaining, inspecting and repairing LIRR and Metro-North escalators, professional services for SEQRA or NEPA related to congestion pricing…and the list continues.
