One of the benefits that separates NYC from other major cities is our massive transportation system. Nowhere else in the world is there a system that runs almost 24 hours a day.  Unfortunately, the system is antiquated, does not serve all New Yorkers by failing to comply with federally mandated ADA requirements, and its two-fare system continues to financially hurt riders.  The City must find a way to effectively partner with the State for balanced control over the MTA.  By identifying ways to partner with the State, we can expand access to buses, improve accessibility, support innovative transit solutions, such as the implementation of a City-run bike-sharing program. This would potentially create a new revenue stream that will create union jobs such as the maintenance of  repair of bikes and the maintenance of docking stations.
