Affordable and Equitable Transit
Transportation affects us all, but some New Yorkers – particularly low-income residents, communities of color, the disabled, the elderly, and children – are disproportionately burdened by the inadequacies of our transportation system.
Transportation determines how we get to the places where we live, work, play, pray and learn. Unfortunately, the transportation system in New York is flawed due to imbalanced funding that favors cars over other modes of transportation. As a result, residents across the state are facing transit service cuts, increased travel costs, negative health impacts, environmental degradation, reduced access to jobs and risks linked to climate change.
