Largest MTA Infrastructure Capital Program Approved

The largest investment in MTA infrastructure has been approved. The $27 billion 2015-19 MTA Capital Program has received final approval from the Capital Plan Review Board. The approval will lead to the purchase of 2,340 buses and 1,450 subway cars, advance an initiative to build four new Metro-North stations in underserved areas of the Bronx and bring Metro-North service to Penn Station. Other improvements will jumpstart the extension of the Second Avenue Subway to East Harlem; enhance the LIRR by adding a second track along 18 miles between Farmingdale and Ronkonkoma; revitalize and upgrade stations; create a new fare payment system to replace the MetroCard; enhance the East Side Access project so LIRR riders will be able to travel into Grand Central Terminal. It is expected that in the fall the first contract will be awarded.
