Statement of John Samuelsen, President, TWU Local 100, on Gov. Cuomo’s State of the State Address

“Transit workers applaud Governor Cuomo’s commitment to investment in our transportation infrastructure, including his plans, announced yesterday, for a long-overdue train link to LaGuardia Airport.  We look forward to working with the Governor to develop a plan that fully integrates the link to LaGuardia with New York City Transit. We also support the Governor’s desire to provide dedicated public transportation lanes on the new Tappan Zee bridge, and his plans to construct four new Metro North stations in the Bronx.  We urge the Governor to support a Bus Rapid Transit system that will provide riders with faster, more frequent bus service, especially in areas already dependent on buses as their primary transportation option.  Our public transit system provides essential service to more than 8 million people every day, and is vital to the entire region’s economic growth and stability.  Every dollar spent is a dollar invested that will provide valuable returns for our entire state.”
