Mass Transit, Transportation, and Infrastructure

As Mayor, Richard will be a champion of creative solutions that meet our 21st century transportation needs.
  • Fight for mayoral priorities on transit funding, with detailed plans to build consensus.
  • Work cooperatively with the Governor on long-term capital and expense plans to reduce delays, upgrade signals, and increase capacity.
  • Subsidize subways and buses more, especially for workers and job-seekers.
  • Extend mass transit in each borough to reach all communities, and integrate transit to allow travel throughout New York City on a single-fare.
  • Increase bus service right away, rather than merely propose future expensive unfunded projects that will be killed by local opposition anyway (like the BQX) .
  • Improve roads, street cleaning, snow removal, signs, signals, and road markings.
  • Work with neighborhoods to fix hazards and bottlenecks, and smooth congestion.
  • Add traffic calming, protected intersections, and other safety measures.
  • Improve road sharing to separate cars, bicycles, pedestrians, and buses.
