I will support the creation of more dedicated bike lanes and municipal control of the MTA system. Prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, I took the subway everyday to work. It goes without saying that service had become unreliable and not on par with the quality of comparable cities such as Tokyo and London. Moving forward, subway delays can no longer regularly make us one-hour late to morning meetings. We’re in an extraordinarily dynamic time and this is an opportunity to make big improvements in how we operate. I will take the following actions:

  • Support the effort to establish municipal control of the MTA system

  • Support efforts to continue expanding bike lanes in Harlem
