Rail Rehab

Last year New York State Assemblymembers Crystal Peoples-Stokes, Sean Ryan and Monica Wallace, along with members of NFTA's leadership team, announced a $9 Million capital grant for Metro Rail, through the New York State Department of Transportation.

This year? We get to see some of those funds put to work. The elevator and escalator rehabilitation project is already improving service and reliability to rail stations. You can track the progress live on Metro’s website. What can’t be seen are many of the other improvements taking place. Track, switches and the overhead wires, called catenary, are all being replaced or improved.

As Metro Rail enters its 36th year of service, that service is on track to be better than ever.
