MTA Riders and Workers Rally For State Senate Plan To Boost Transit Spending, Against Governor’s Raids

After Saving Bus And Train Service From Collapse, MTA Riders, Workers, Experts Will Rally For State Senate Plan To Boost Transit Spending And Against Governor Cuomo’s Raids That Would Trigger Fare Hikes And Service Cuts
In his executive budget, Governor Cuomo is threatening to raid hundreds of millions of dollars set aside for public transit, exceeding MTA revenue from a looming fare hike

New York, NY–Transit riders, elected and labor leaders, and advocates will rally in favor of a State Senate plan to increase MTA support and against Governor Cuomo’s planned raids on dedicated funds, which could spark fare hikes and service cuts and undermine New Yorkers’ hardwon return to public transit.

What: Riders, labor leaders, elected officials, and advocates will rally for the State Senate MTA funding plan and against the governor’s raids on funds set aside for public transit.
