April Board Meeting Updates

Because of the ongoing COVID-19 public health crisis, we changed how our April 2020 board meeting worked. The MTA Chairman convened a one-day, virtual board and committee meeting on Wednesday, April 22. 

The meeting included the full MTA board and the following committees:

  • Long Island Rail Road and Metro-North Railroad
  • New York City Transit
  • MTA Bridges and Tunnels
  • Finance
  • Safety
  • Capital Program Oversight Committee

We want to do everything we can to keep the public, our employees, and our board members safe and healthy.
