"Mass transit is the lifeblood of New York, and a 21st century city must protect and improve its mass transit infrastructure…New York has a natural advantage in this seemingly daunting task. We begin with an extraordinary enterprising spirit, unparalleled resiliency and a long history of engineering the impossible."
Governor Andrew Cuomo in the New York Daily News

Public transportation is a powerful force to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions that cause climate change.

That’s why making the Metropolitan Transportation Authority network more resilient against extreme weather is both a short-term tactic to keep service running and a long-term strategy to fight climate change.
