MTA kicks off campaign to get votes for Transportation Bond ActPosted: Updated:
The MTA is kicking off a campaign this week to convince Bronx residents to vote for the state?s Transportation Bond Act in November.
Approximately 15,000 posters promoting the bond act will be displayed on buses, subways and commuter trains in the Bronx. The bond act sets aside approximately $1.5 billion for several MTA projects. Some of the projects are expected to receive federal funding. However, MTA Chairman Peter Kalikow warns that if the bond act doesn?t pass, the federal money may not be received.
Supporters of the bond act say all of the projects would ease traffic congestion in the metro area, create thousands of jobs and generate billions in economic growth.
