            ICYMI, @NYCTSubway reached its highest pandemic-era ridership yesterday with 3.5M rides! 🥳 NY is coming back, and with good service (and good weather), there’s no doubt that ridership will keep climbing. But @MTA needs dedicated operating $ to keep running reliably & affordably!
            Thanks to @SenSchumer for all he's done for transit & transit riders throughout NYS & @MTA region. Congratulations on receiving the well-deserved #ZuccottiAward at today's @RegionalPlan #RPAAssembly. We appreciate your ongoing fight to bring in much-needed $ for trains & buses.
            As @GovKathyHochul noted at today's @RegionalPlan #RPAAssembly, the fact that she & @NYCMayor work well together means @MTA & its millions of riders have a better than fighting chance of getting the safe, reliable, equitable, accessible & affordable ride they deserve.
