[Op-Ed]

I am delighted with today's announcement of the Review Board's approval of the MTA's Capital Plan, which represents a great day for public transportation in The Bronx, across the city and throughout the region. The Capital Plan Review Board’s approval of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s capital budget is a tremendous step forward. A fully-funded MTA capital plan is critical to not only the continued maintenance of our transit system but to the development of new infrastructure improvements, as well.
Most importantly, for my borough, this capital plan funds the long awaited, much anticipated East Bronx Metro North expansion. The establishment of new commuter stations in Co-op City, Morris Park, Parkchester/Van Nest, and Hunts Point will not only offer residents of these communities a new transportation option, it will open the East Bronx corridor to new residential and commercial development potential as well as reverse commute employment opportunities, and is the most significant infrastructure improvement our borough has seen in decades.
want to thank Governor Cuomo, Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie, State Senate Coalition Co-Leader Jeff Klein and the board of the MTA, especially Bronxites Fernando Ferrer and Charles Moerdler; as well as the numerous community and elected leaders who showed their support for this expansion, for their continued advocacy on behalf of this long-awaited project.
