Governor’s budget increases state operating funds

Posted:

ALBANY, N.Y.-- A 1.35-percent increase was proposed in state operating assistance for the Capital District Transportation Authority in Governor Cuomo's Executive budget request for 2014-2015.

The budget proposal unveiled on Tuesday would provide an additional $420,000 that would bring CDTA's funding package to $31.6 million for 2014.

 "We appreciate Governor Cuomo's continued support of public transit and will make good use of the additional funds," said CDTA Chairman David M. Stackrow.

CDTA is on track to serve more than 16 million riders this fiscal year, its highest boarding count in 30 years.
