OurMTA Helping Transit Work for New Yorkers

Our Vision of the Future

An Accountable MTA

We believe in a future where the New Yorkers have a real voice at the MTA, where every concern is properly addressed. A future where the leadership of the MTA answers to the riders themselves, rather than politicians in Albany.

A Modern MTA

We look forward to a time when beautiful subway stations and helpful workers complement trains which are fast, reliable, uncrowded, and pleasant.

While New Yorkers face constant delays and crowding, modern subways around the world travel like clockwork seconds, not minutes apart, on automated trains that have run smoothly, safely and consistently, for 20 years.
