Possible Reduction for New York City MTA Services

Possible Reduction for New York City MTA Services

The MTA can possibly reduce their services by up to 40 percent after not receiving the necessary $12 billion in federal aid they desperately need since the pandemic hit.

By cutting down on subways, buses, and SIR, the MTA will save $880 million in annual income, subway headways will increase by up to eight minutes, and bus headways will rise by up to 15 minutes.

The MTA is losing $200 million a week, "not even the Great Depression saw a dramatic drop in ridership like the pandemic-induced one," MTA Chairman Pat Foye said.

This lack of funding will also force the agency to cut back on permanent positions, leaving thousands without a job, which will evidently result in lane closures, delays in incident responses, and less frequent city maintenance.
