Governor Cuomo:

Fund "Fast Forward!"

Dear Governor Cuomo:

We, the transit riders of New York, demand that you fund New York City Transit President Andy Byford's badly needed "Fast Forward" plan to fix our crumbling subways.

Train delays have more than tripled in the past six years because the MTA's equipment is antiquated and obsolete. We leave for work not knowing if or when we will arrive. Public transit is in crisis, and the "Fast Forward" plan is a blueprint for a solution. If the funding is in place to make it happen.

You control the MTA and you lead the state budget process that can produce new funding for transit. We need your leadership to forge a solution. On behalf of millions of daily transit riders, we urge you to create a fair, sustainable funding source so the "Fast Forward" plan can become a reality.
