De Blasio: 'New York Has Used the MTA as a Piggy Bank'

VIDEO: Transit Union Ad Campaign Demands Mayor 'Pay Fair Share' for MTA
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on Thursday called on the private sector to help improve New York City's aging subway system, saying business and civic organizations could each contribute $250,000 to join a "partnership council" and clean up dirty, decrepit areas.
The first phase will focus on signal and track maintenance, vehicle reliability, system safety and cleanliness, customer communications and management.
Cuomo told Lhota and Transport Workers Union 100 President John Samuelsen that the state is fulfilling its comment.
De Blasio on Wednesday said he knows nothing about the email, which is time stamped 10:53PM Saturday.
On Wednesday, Lhota unveiled his NYC Subway Action Plan, an $836 million short-term renewal project. According to the New York Times, Foran said that the MTA plans to raise fares and tolls in 2019 and 2021 to fund the costly repairs. He proposed that the city and the state each contribute half of the cost of the short-term plan.
The plan is still in its early stages, Lhota said. Cuomo said that investigation continues, but the state-run Public Service Commission has already started directing the utility.

"Over the last 12 months, 32,000 delays because of power-related issues", he said. "The fundamental responsibility of government is to respond in a timely and effective way when people need help". Cuomo, who controls the authority, has agreed to pay for the rest, but Mr.de Blasio has resisted giving the authority more money.
Note the $800 million plan calls for 50-50 funding from New York City and the state.
But voters were split about why Cuomo and de Blasio are fighting in the first place - 42% say it's about honest disagreement over doing what's best for the city and 41% think it's personal. "Without financial support from the state - and the city - riders will be forced to suffer through more delays, more breakdowns and more misery".
Over the weekend, de Blasio rode the F train at the 4th Avenue-9th Street station and reiterated that it's Cuomo's responsibility to fix the subway system.
Lhota, who is expected to complete a 30-day review of the subway system this week, has said he will likely ask the city for more funding for needed upgrades. This comes after recent train derailments in Harlem and in Brooklyn.
Lhota this week unveiled a plan to fix the subways that includes adding cars on trains to ease overcrowding, removing seats from some cars to increase capacity and prioritizing door maintenance.
