BILL NUMBER:S6469

TITLE OF BILL: An act in relation to directing the New York city trans-
it authority and the metropolitan transportation authority to report to
the governor and the legislature on transportation service reductions
and eliminations occurring since January 1, 2008

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:

This bill requires the NYCTA and the MTA to report to the legislature
and the governor on all transportation service reductions and elimi-
nations since January 1, 2008. The bill spells out that the report shall
include actual revenue savings as compared to anticipated savings for
each route; the cost to fully restore each such change; a detailed plan
for full restoration or a detailed plan for equitable restoration of
subways, buses and commuter rail that substantially mitigate the impacts
of the cuts and eliminations and fairly restores services through all
neighborhoods and regions.

The report is due to the governor and the legislature on or before
December 31, 2015.

JUSTIFICATION:

This report will provide a clear picture of the service cuts and elimi-
nations of transportation services in the MTA region since January 1,
2008. It should highlight inequities in how these cuts and eliminations
targeted certain neighborhoods and/or regions of the MTA Legion and
provide the Governor and the Legislature a clear picture of the
resources needed to restore services prior to consideration of the
2014-15 budget season.
