Andy's Almanac - March 1 (a little late, sorry)

Posted by andy on Wed Mar 7 19:21:10 2018

March 1, 1968: The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is formally launched, becoming the parent agency of NYC Transit Authority, MABSTOA, Triborough Bridge and Tunnel Authority. MTA, originally called MCTA (C as in “commuter”) had controlled the Long Island Rail Road since January 1966, so on this date 50 years and seven days ago LIRR became part of much larger transportation agency. That setup remains to this day, with Metro-North’s former railroads (NY Central and New Haven), and Staten Island Railway, added between 1969 and 1971.
