MTA commits $8.8 billion for capital projects: We have some questions

Building and rebuilding our transit system is incredibly important to millions of New Yorkers and the entire region, and we’re heartened that the MTA is finally using the funds from prior capital programs for this critical work. These projects will help get riders where they’re going faster, more safely and with more accessible options. Thank you to the MTA for getting this list out and to the Legislature for its interest at the hearing yesterday. We have some questions…

  • Which project comes from which capital program?
  • What are the individual project costs, and what are start and completion dates?
  • What is the cost of delay from not doing the work when the money was first identified?
  • What is the cost of debarment and its effect on competition?
