MTA chief outlines planned improvements

Metropolitan Transportation Authority Chief Elliot Sander laid out his future vision of city transit in a "State of the MTA" speech Monday, one that includes enhanced service systemwide as well as links between regional rails.

 

Sander announced the MTA will move forward with $30 million in service improvements over the next few months, including additional service on 11 subway lines and extend many bus routes.

 

Sander touched on the MTA's big projects: the 2nd Avenue subway, the Fulton Street transit hub and East Side Access for the Long Island Rail Road.

 

In all, the agency has 32 proposals, which will cost $46 million a year.

Not ll of the trains ordered by the MTA see daily service on their respective subway line. Sometimes they just sit in the yard the whole day. I think.

Yes all of the trains ordered by the MTA do see daily service on their lines.Esp in the A div the only reason why a certain train set. might not come into service on a certain day is because it might be out for maintence.But during rush hours the yards empty out expept for ENY because those R160s cant run on the (J) and (M) lines yet...
