New York does not need to go the way of other countries and create multi-state bureaucracies to finance and build mass transit systems, according to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s chairman. Ironically, the MTA chairman made the comments late last week at a conference organized by a multi-state group, the Regional Plan Association.
Yet that new link, which Lhota said might run south to West 23rd Street along the West Side Highway, likely will be too costly to be included in the authority’s next five-year capital plan.
Asked how to keep New Yorkers moving despite the cash crunch, Janette Sadik-Khan, commissioner of New York City’s Department of Transportation, said she was focused on expanding express buses and the summer launch of a privately-funded bike-sharing program with 10,000 bikes for 270 miles of bike lanes. James Simpson, the commissioner of New Jersey’s Department of Transportation, said one past way of funding transportation – raising taxes on gasoline – was politically impossible. One of the panelists who recommended a multi-state approach sprang from a bi-state agency: Anthony Shorris, a previous executive director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, who now serves as the senior vice president of the NYU Langone Medical Center. The issues we’re talking about require regional, maybe even super-regional authorities.
Yet New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, seen as a potential Democratic presidential candidate in 2016, is highly unlikely to wish to cede any authority to a new multi-state bureaucracy, analysts said. Panelists noted that getting more transportation funds requires regaining the public’s trust that the money will be well-spent. It’s the result of a former elected official who now is incarcerated and he made it up out of whole cloth.

As you can see the NYC area's rail system is very big and I left out Airtrain JFK, AirTrain Newark, Newark City subway, among others . I was actually just at a Metro training facility today practicing for fires or special rescues with the Metro.
And though it isn't a rail line, it should be noted that Staten Island does have a public transit ferry operated by the same agency running to and from Manhattan. It was created in 1922 to improve the quality of life in Connecticut, New York and New Jersey. In six years or so, the new Second Avenue subway line will link East 96th Street to East 63rd Street. He argued that New York cannot expand its mass transit system by itself because so many commuters come from outside the city’s boroughs. The same likely is true of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, a possible GOP 2016 presidential contender. Both Cuomo and Christie have sought to strengthen their executive branches, though not always successfully.
If you see a comment that you believe is irrelevant or inappropriate, you can flag it to our editors by using the report abuse links. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, for example, had to get the city to pay for the billion-dollar extension of the No.

But it could take generations to lengthen the line so that it runs from 125th Street to Lower Manhattan.
The two governors already share control of the Port Authority, which runs Hudson River crossings, the PATH commuter train and is rebuilding the World Trade Center complex. The authority won a court ruling that found it did not keep two sets of books – one private and one for the public – but that confidence-damaging perception lingers on. In addition to front and rear skirting, modified in 1940s, a short original front and rear anticlimbers were replaced by readily available full-width castings and wings around the headlight were omitted. New connections with New Jersey, which has its own transit system, are still in the early stages. New York’s legislature beat back a bid by Cuomo to gain the ability to freely transfer funds among agencies. The trolley pole shroud color was changed from silver to green and windshield wiper cowl was painted silver instead of green. Most of the 100 car fleet of PCC soldiered on until their 20th birthday in October 1956, but on October 31, 1956 the last cars were operated on Church and McDonald Avenues, thus ending over the 60 years of streetcar service.
