Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today toured MTA New York City Transit’s 207th Street Car Overhaul Shop with MTA Chairman Joseph Lhota and announced a series of accelerated car repairs associated with the full funding of the Subway Action Plan. The 207th Street Overhaul Shop along with the system’s other overhaul shop in Coney Island will now fully rehabilitate more than 1,300 cars a year – nearly 40 percent more than previous years. The full funding secured in the FY 2019 state budget will allow New York City Transit to significantly enhance the number of workers hired as part of the Subway Action Plan. The additional staff will allow the MTA’s car overhaul shops to operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week. NYGovCuomo Official video
