Everyone from the leaders in Albany down to the riders themselves knows that time is ticking on finding solutions to starve off a “doomsday scenario“. With that in mind, representatives from the MTA, Gov. Patterson, the State Assembly & Senate continue to hold meetings to do just that. A short time ago, the MTA issued a statement about these meetings through e-mail:
Significant progress was made today in meetings between staff representing the MTA, Governor Paterson, the Senate and the Assembly. We have agreed to do additional analysis and reconvene in Albany tomorrow morning for further discussions.
For the sake of so many in the tri-state area, lets hope they can come up with legitimate & well thought out solutions. The fate of our transit system & the millions who use it daily depend on it.
