MTA NYC Transit Bus service improvements : "2012–2013 Service Investments" {full list}

Posted by Gold_12TH on Thu Jul 19 16:18:13 2012

Dear Customers

Since arriving at the MTA last November, I have been focused on two objectives – containing costs and finding ways to maintain, improve and expand services that you, our customers, rely on every day to get to work, school and points in between.

I am pleased to say that as a result of our efforts, we are announcing $29 million in service investments. Some of these investments will restore services that were reduced or eliminated as part of the MTA’s 2009-2010 budget-balancing cuts. Other investments – because the travel patterns of the region are constantly evolving – will fund services that respond to the need for transit services in growing and changing neighborhoods.

These service investments are the result of careful analysis, meeting our goal of serving all neighborhoods and areas with the best and most frequent bus, subway or commuter rail service possible under our current financial conditions. The funding for these service investments is the result of both aggressive efforts to reduce and control costs and also revenues from growing ridership. It is our priority to ensure that both of these efforts continue.

The service investments on the pages that follow are proposed for Long Island Rail Road, Metro-North Railroad and NYC Transit Bus and Subway. All of these proposals will be discussed with the MTA Board during the next few weeks and implementation of the service investments will be phased in over the course of a year beginning this coming October.

You have my assurance that we are committed to the strongest, most efficiently operated transportation system we can provide to the region and promise you that we will make every effort to continue to make the kind of progress that makes these improvements possible.

Joseph J. Lhota
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
