“After thousands of our city residents, organizations, and elected officials expressed their disapproval of the proposed changes and cuts, with plenty of strong reasons, the MTA has once again ignored those voices and approved a package of measures that will deeply affect the lives of many New Yorkers. Although I am not surprised with the result, considering the history of decisions made by the MTA lately, it disappoints me that its board members are not capable of solving the problems of our transportation system without causing serious harm to its users,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
