NYC four three three nine six nine two or you can tweet a question just use the hashtag asked the mayor good morning Mister mayor welcome back to W. NYC right right I think that really is a great tweet I think this question is can either or both of those situations be turned around in time thank the Byford situation can be turned around well I'm not saying I have any particular knowledge I'm saying it stands to reason we've seen many times where someone said that they were getting ready to leave and and you know with enough effort they were convinced to stay so I think the state of New York to get to it you know trying convince sandy bye for today you look and fight for his done amazing job and he put forth a plan that really was transformative I think his presence was a big part of why we were able last able to pass the first plan in memory to actually fully fund the MTA and fix it I think you know what we need in going forward and why not try and keep them have you lost some kind of effort to try and keep them of you I am I am talking about now for the first time because it dawned on me this morning that when I thought about history a bit there been people who were getting ready to leave and change their mind or were persuaded to come back and I think this is a case where he's a singular talent eight hours to getting a great outpouring of support from new Yorkers why don't we try to give it to this day this seems to happen once already he was going to resign in October and governor Cuomo convinced him to stay right what seems to be okay I wasn't in those back room discussions but look I think new Yorkers want to say I want to say for sure city council wants to this day my appealed to the state of New York is get a room with them trying to understand the world take to get him to stay maybe there are some changes that would be possible that will convince him he could continue on and productive positive manner and I don't think I'd like in the bye for grow on trees I think he's a pretty special town and he's proven he can handle New York City let's try to keep up when you say the state of New York should get in a room with them you mean governor Cuomo yeah and whoever else from his team has been working with by for I don't know who are the people most active in dealing with the MTA but unquestionably if he needs persuasion that a lot can be achieved I mean look again I anybody looking at the outpouring of support in last twenty four hours he doesn't have to wonder whether it's popular support or the support of the elected officials of New York City we all want to stay so I think it comes down to the state trying to figure out what they're gonna take begin to change his mind I don't think it's an impossible question I've seen I've seen harder things done just the doesn't tweet from Wall Street journal city hall reporter Katie hone in who says the mayor joins the bring back and the hash tag bring back and the movement so I did know was a hash tag I didn't know it was a movement all right has tag but sign me up I think log again how many people can handle the challenge of the MTA it is been an incredibly ineffective inefficient operations and anti Byford is the first person in memory to turn around and actually make something work you know sometimes you know everyone needs just swallow pride a bit and say Hey what the guy take anti we need you zancor at this point of his resignation because the governor took away some of by for deformity with the recent M. T. a reorganization I don't know honestly Brian I have not had that conversation with buy for anyone else but I think it's even simpler than that it simply said look I have I have hired police commissioner schools chancellor people out the handles on the biggest toughest jobs in America and you know those are very very special talented people and if your chief executive you know you understand you got to work for them so I say Hey we'll ask him what is it going to take candy what do you need to stay because we need to simple as that related to the city council speaker Cory Johnson wants the city to take control of the buses and subways from the MTA which of course wants transit for the whole region the commuter rail center do you support that I think bigger Johnson has a good idea in the sense of what would be the ideal and I said you know had we not gotten to the funding formula and the for the agreement and Albany back in April I think it would have been a necessary move is if the state had not agreed to a plan to actually fund the MTA that would have been immediately the moment that would clarify the need for a different structure but I really do believe even though it might be the ideal setting the practical reality and new Yorkers are nothing if not practical the practical reality is for the MTA's succeed we depend on a bunch of revenue we get through the state in New York that I honestly fear would not be guaranteed to us in last it continued in the current form so my fear is if you tried to make it part of the city government we would then experience exactly what we're experiencing right now on Medicaid an attempt to de fund direct services to people and that happened with the MTA we would be in a horrible horrible situation so I would say pragmatically now that we have a funding plans the MTA keep it state run but let's keep the pressure on to change the MTA fix the MTA get by for back all the things that will help and have a better future if one day it was proven that the state simply wouldn't you know take the responsibility needed to that might be the data talk about city control but I think it's premature right now and we'll talk about the governor's new demands on the city with respect to Medicaid in fact on all the counties in the state as we go but let's take our first ask the made a phone call for today Maria in Brooklyn you're on W. NYC with mayor de Blasio hi Maria hello thank you for taking this call Meredith Blasio I wanted to bring to your attention again the failings of the inclusionary zoning program without the transparency and accountability needed so becoming homeless such as myself I read this question at a male form a couple years ago and immediately either was then re Hendrickson of H. P. D. and James tax to the BBC give me a business card there's been no follow up and the situation has become extremely aggravated would you please intervene thank you Maria thank you where where do you live Maria and just tell me is there something happening with zoning in your area part of IT inclusionary zoning site actually and I am really concerned about the methodology of the sponsors and the lack of oversight by H. P. D. and it's a complicated matter I can't give it all to you in twenty seconds right but we need your immediate intervention to this matter thank you okay Maria please give your information to WNYC on I have folks follow up today I I apologize if people on my team told you that follow up and they didn't that's not acceptable so I will make sure people follow up today look the inclusion is on its one year runs here listeners including zoning the way we did it mandatory losers owning is the strongest law in the United States America requiring developers to build affordable housing if they want to build their private buildings and I think it is absolutely necessary tool to force the creation of affordable housing literally if a developer will not crazy for housing they're not allowed to build anything but I think there is one is really important it has to be applied properly and we have to make sure that there's no antenna consequences or no developers trying to sneak around the rules so I take her concern the heart and I want my folks to follow up today and figure out if there's something that we need to address immediately there well let me ask you a question about zoning and affordable housing in lower Manhattan there's reporting on a group of young yandy activists yes in my backyard unity who are calling on the city to up soon so ho and know how to include more affordable housing they say these are among the wealthiest and why this neighborhoods in the city and that the larger context is the charge that almost all the density and lower income units you've been added for rezoning have been in low income neighborhoods so what do you say that somehow and know how in particular and the larger picture look in particular I really important plan came out recently that showed a pathway to create more affordable housing in lower Manhattan I think it's a question of whether it's viable to get it through mail the U. R. process in the coming months and years but is it generally the right idea of course we have to create affordable housing everywhere we're going to keep the city a city for everyone and that means in neighborhoods that are more privilege and every kind of neighborhood so I think that direction is correct I think the bigger point is really important for people understand is you know take the example here to reverse example San Francisco Francisco there was adamant believes that nothing should be built of any size what that led to was it's actually a gated community an exclusive city where more and more poor people and working people were forced out top advisers kept going up there was no alternative for working people because if you don't build anything new that's affordable you don't have many options for people and obviously equal equally important if you don't create opportunities to insure the folks who are homeless have someplace to go on the way to affordable housing you'll have a huge street homeless problem like that happens and Francisco so this city has done it I think by far into the country the right way we got a lot we got to fix a lot we've got to do better going forward but the heavy commitment to public housing to rent regulation to building new affordable housing to preserving.

It's a known fact at least to New York City historians that about twenty thousand people are buried beneath Washington square park before the park was built in eighteen fifty part of it had been a Potter's field for indigent New Yorkers that history means a lot of bodies. And sometimes they're unearthed by modern construction projects now officials from the parks department plan to show.

Some scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible. So Joe starting to sound a little bit more like summertime rights eighties in their upper eighties. Some showers here thunderstorms on all the weekend looks. Great. Sounds very good, right? Enjoy. Thank you. It is now.

You're going to blame your he's blaming Andy by when he gets absolutely no help. No support. He basically cuts antibi- it off at the knees every chance he gets. And all the people within the subway, the MTA no this. I'll give an example yesterday. I gave a big speech on anti semitism in Times Square. Just blew out everybody's hearing aid sad, and then I headed off to fiftieth street and eighth avenue, the uptown, she trained platform, I was gagging. Normally packed with tourists and visitors it.

"You're listening to all things considered on WNYC. I'm Jamie Floyd today. The MTA passed a fare increase yesterday, the governor and mayor announced a ten point plan to reform the transit agency. And then there was the fatal crash into rail met last night on the Long Island Rail road. It's a lot to unpack. And that's why we have WNYC's transportation reporter Steven Nessin here with us in studio. Hey, Steven, Hello, Jamie. Let's start with today's news MTA board. Members voted for a fare increase. What's the damage the cost of a monthly metro card will go from one hundred twenty one dollars to one hundred and twenty seven the seven day. Passes will go up a buck and good news is based fares of seventy five won't change. But that extra bonus has been eliminated. Accessorized users were particularly vocal about the recent increase, which they say would have disproportionately impacted them the decided not to raise their fares. Tolls will also go up on the bridges and tunnels. But it's chump change nothing. Even close. To a dollar. All right. Let's talk about money ridership on subways and buses has been on the decline since twenty fifteen how much will this fare increase. Help will the fares go towards the daily operations running the trains, keeping stations, clean, etc. And the agency is already budgeted an overall four percent fare increase into its budget. That's why the one month delay. They say cost them actually thirty million dollars. They were supposed to vote last month on this. But yes, the MTA has way bigger financial problems than this is projecting a five hundred million dollar deficit next year and a one billion dollar deficit by twenty twenty two. Here's board member. Neil Zuckerman today with some hard truths about the fare increase. But it doesn't help the overall problem, and we must have sustainable revenues because as Mr. Farinas shown us many times a billion dollar bogey sitting out there in twenty twenty two is a frightening deficit. That is bankruptcy for many organizations on this point. I think everyone agrees GMT ta needs more money, quote, sustainable revenue. The head of the transit system. Andy Byford is put forward a plan that may cost up to forty billion dollars. It's called fast forward and would bring the subways up to modern international standards, which brings us to the governor. And the mayors announcement yesterday on congestion pricing, right? Exactly. That would be tolling drivers the enter Manhattan below sixty first street at a rate, they would fluctuate with the time of day and would pay for Byford very expensive plan that is generating money for upgrading the cars and replacing the century-old signal system if you haven't been following it the mayor has called for a millionaires tax to do this and he holds onto that idea like a sentimental handkerchief. But for now, he's co-signing with the governor on the congestion pricing plan. They're giving themselves until the end of twenty twenty to get congestion. Pricing up and running congestion pricing was talked about last year. And in the end at that point all the governor could get past with a surcharge on taxis and four hire vehicles. This new plan is going to have to be included in the budget, which is due April. I is there a chance of that. This time will certainly helps to have the mirror on board implementing it will require extensive cooperation with the city. But yes, the hurdle has always been the state legislature. And today, the Senate majority leader Andrea Stewart cousins has come out against the congestion pricing plan. Her complaints are Long Island. Residents will be charged the new fees, but won't see any improvements to the Long Island railroad the governor's office shot back saying no one's decided how much money's going where yet acting chairman FREDDY Ferrer of the MTA wouldn't comment and all this deflecting it saying this is above his pay grade. But he did say the future of the MTA is in the legislatures hands. Everybody says we want. Fast forward. We support Andy Byford. Well, that's going to cost some money. I don't know. Now, we've got a no we've got to come up with the resources, we need the governor in mayor's plan. Also includes giving the MTA funds from an internet tax and tax on legalized marijuana Stewart. Cousins says she's okay with that. But other legislatures had their own plans of what they would like to do with that money. Finally, Stephen there was a crash and derailment on the Long Island railroad at Westbury last night. They killed three people and injured seven others. What's the latest on that? We'll services still disrupted. There's ongoing work to get the derailed train back on the.

"Yeah, they may save money on this particular piece of the MTA infrastructure. But at what cost down the road. That's Brian Samson, the president of the regional chapter of the associated builders and contractors a trade group that represents private-sector contractors. He says what he sees is more unreliability from a client that is notoriously difficult contracting. Perspective is the MTA less attractive client, potentially. You're going to be the case. And mt. Leadership knows it has a problem when it comes to delivering big projects on time and on budget while there have been some recent successes like the Long Island railroad's double-track project, which came in a year. Early leaders aren't waiting for the next blow from the governor tinker with the agency structure, for example. Here's managing director. Ronnie, hey, come at a recent board meeting explaining how now on big projects there will be one person responsible to make sure there are no last minute changes coming from the various departments. No, no. We can't have changes like that anymore. We have to stick with what we planned. The contractor bid the job. Let's have the contractor build what the job that he built. So let the governor remains an ever-present. Wow. Wildcard. There's already signs. He's sticking his nose into another big MTA project. Andy Byford plan to replace all the signals it'll cost at least forty billion dollars in require many more tracks shutdowns Byford wants to use one signal technology called CBT BTC. The governor calls that nineteen eighty stuff. He wants something newer. But if the l repairs are a success, the governor may be on to something for WNYC..

"Today's Len Berman and Michael Riedel in the morning show. Good morning, everybody. Well, if you're going to swipe your fare car, they're not going to take as much money out of it is it looked like they were at one point the MTA met yesterday to discuss fare hikes, and they have postponed a fare hike at this point might be helpful. If they got the subways running on time before they wanted more of your money because you're not you want to pay more you want to pay for good service. Not the lousy service. We have right now. So for the time being no fare hikes. Well, they say they wanna tie it into officiency. You know, you get your hike if you're more efficient do a better job sounds good. But how do they judge that? Isn't that rather subjective? I'm they could say well on time schedules and all kinds of stuff. That's how you judge on time schedule right now. The on time schedules are terrible. You always complain about. Whenever you take the subway that you're you're always fetching about the waiting for the train forever. And then it comes in it. It's going to skip the local stop. And then suddenly discover your sailing past the stop that you wanted to get off on get off. Change trains and go back or the stop is closed or it's skipping this. And that and and you and you really don't know until you get on the subway. What's happening? And then the worst though is there's that awful feeling you get when you just know because the subways just it's eerily quiet. You just know it means because the train is not gonna come for a long long time. Yeah. I always get that sense. When I go down. And I know this platform is too quiet. It means there's not a train coming in. They're gonna come back next month. I guess they meet the third week of every month. They'll come back next month with another meeting about this. But for the moment, it's off. I don't know at some point. They've gotta figure out either had cut costs raise money. I miss this. Obviously that the double jeopardy there, and, you know, the the regular writers and the regular employees say there's too much management and cut some an ad out and save some money there and and got to cut down on the turnstile jumpers to cut down on. And the signals needs to be changed. I mean, they're so old decrepit, so there's so much work that needs to be. Done. I would think this this congestion pricing would have some effect. And maybe would be good. I guess some people are dreaming that marijuana sales. If they legalize marijuana in in the in the state would pay for and they're gonna have to legalize marijuana. They're going gonna have to legalize prostitution there have to legalize every vice to get enough money to fix the sub. So here's here's what our mayor said when yesterday's meeting turned out to be just kicked the canned down the road. I think it was smart to say we need a pause to address those issues we need to make sure that those two things are going to happen. That's the bottom line. Everything else is secondary to getting a final decision on how we're gonna fix MTA and how we're gonna pay for it. And that can only be done by the legislature and the governor, and I fundamentally believe it needs to be done as part of the budget to actually work that the governor was on his big horse, and he was going to take over the MTA charge. You have a transit chief, Henry Higgins. Andy Byford English strike, you know, but we do have MTA chairman Fernando Ferrer have this guy consulting widely among the board as well. As stakeholders.

"Are open for Andy Byford a two one two four three three WNYC four three three nine six nine to Greenspace audience. How many how many of you took the L train to get here today? Okay. Full of handful of L train riders. Let's talk about that. I you have endorsed the governor's plan, but a website, Gotha. Misreported you're at a community board meeting the other day saying you still have questions, and you won't be steamrolled into an unsafe plan. So does the governor's plan have your full support? I think anyone who is customer et which I am would. Absolutely, welcome a plan to avoid the disruption that we would've otherwise to export onto customers of two hundred and twenty-five thousand thousand uses between Brooklyn, Manhattan everyday. Absolutely. I'm I'm delighted that there is a way of avoiding that. All I'm saying and the governor, and I are on exactly the same page is obviously we've got to get now the detail, right? As I said the other day to other media the pats on effectively passes to me, the the panel of come up with their recommendations, we liked the look of the plan very much in my chair as has said it's over. The publicly the the MTA accepts the recommendations. But as the operators the person you now hold responsible and accountable for delivering this plan, safely operationally. So that we get the practical detail, right? And that we get the customer angle writing in. What is quite different more radical plan? I'm accountable for that. So I'm falls to me to get that detail. Right. And and that's why I will take my time have an independent scrutiny of it. But ultimately with a few to making it work for Gotham is reports you're convening your own engineering team independent of the governor's where the MTA's to focus especially on safety trip. Correct. Brian what the audience for that matter to to really give you reassurance. This is this is partly because this is in my DNA. I've I've been railway now for thirty years. I started on the tube thirty years ago on the thirtieth vote. Tobin nineteen Eighty-nine is a station foreman back in back in the late eighties. But part of my career, I was a safety director operations and safety director for one of the British rail train operating divisions called southeastern trains, having the words safety and director in your title is a sobering experience. My wife hated it actually. But it teaches you to things you must you must act upon something. If you if you know that there's a problem. That's what I call guilty knowledge. You must exercise what's called Jew diligence. So for that reason, I'm exercising judicial agents. I'm just making sure that what looks fantastic on paper. And it's very well thought through I think that that these the panel were was drawn from very expert people that. Cornell, and and this is somewhat being lost in the in the reporting today, they didn't work in isolation. They drew on both the existing plan. We already had an extensive paperwork and live input from our own MTA experts and consultants I just want to do an independent check. And I don't think there's too many people out there who would who would not agree with that. When were you I told that fifteen months shutdown that was supposed to begin in late, April might not the actual date, the schedule change was just before the governor made the announcement with the panel, and the reason for that was obviously the schedule change came at the end of the review, but I was aware right from the points at which the panel requested access to the tunnel. We we facilitated just last month December. So the the the the access to the tunnel. Yes. Was December like December the thirteenth and fourteenth? So full cooperation from the MTA, and there's been a lot of commentary on the MTA recently. But two points, I would like to stress one immediately that was requested. Of course, we facilitated that and to. This this plan, although different in its execution. Still retains most of the features of the original plan. We still going to replace the truck with still going to provide accessibility at the stations the three stations that we have. We would we still going to upgrade the core elements of the tunnel. It's the methodology that's different. And what I said when I came into this job and the governor brought me into do it. Let's not forget I said, I would do embraced two philosophies one because to me and to be open to new ideas. And this this is are those two Phyllis philosophies in action. Earlier this week. We had as a guest Columbia University engineering team Mary Boyce, a lead brain behind the new plan, and she explained in simple layman's terms, for those of us who could never get into engineering school in this thirty second version, how they will work around the damaged walls that house the tunnels cables. What we're proposing? And what we have recommended is that the cables be actually rack on the wall of tunnel high on the wall, the tunnel this racking actually places the cables on the wall not within eventual. So we do not need to to use the bench wall for a for housing the cables, but instead we wrap them on the wall. So it sounds so simple in a way, you know, hang the cables on Iraq. Rather than house them inside the laws that way, they don't need to rebuild the walls, which was the reason for the shutdown if it's that basic, why didn't someone think of it before. Okay. So on that question has been posed a lot in the last couple of weeks. So the MTA did look at racking a few years ago a couple of years ago three years ago, I've seen the evidence of it part of my further. Again utilities has been to look back out. What was previously proposed? Also when I first got here. And I'm almost at my anniversary, Brian January January the sixteenth. We'll have been here. One year. One of the first things I did when I arrived here in the city was to say to my own team. I'd like to take a fresh look at the l line closure. This was probably back in February maybe March of last year because I couldn't really understand. Why did it take fifteen months maybe slightly less fifteen months when the contractor had full possession of that tunnel. That's you know, I appreciate a lot to do. But that's still a long period of time. But what was what was explained to me was the difficulty of breaking out the entire bench will doing so very carefully clearing up the debris putting putting in a new role and the second thing that was explained to me was all of these scenario this scenario and others had been put to the community and the community at the time. Predated me said bye. I just get on with it rip the band aid off and get on with it. So that persuaded me, so I turned my attention not to that not asking anymore questions on that. But to focusing with Polly trot and broke my Commissioner of the Commissioner for DOT to focus on the alternate service plan. So in looking back at this. Yes, we did look at racking we use racking. The MTA does use racking on the West End of the seven line on the on the extension. The streets are Hudson Hudson yards. But the reason it was rejected for the for the L line tunnel was a number of reasons number one. This was the retrofits of an existing river tunnel, which is more inherently more difficult than when you're building from scratch, number two. There was concern about. Effectively mounting brackets on what is a one hundred year old tunnel. There was some concern about that. And the impacts of drilling into that structure number three that was still the prevailing of you. The that bench will was in such bad condition. The best thing to do is take it out. And replace it. The breakthrough with this new plan, which I saying I embraced. But I just want to check the details is the number of things have come together. One. You can leave the bench will by and large in situ as long as you secure it with what's called F P, which is fiber reinforced polymer number two that you there is a way to a fix the the racking to the wall without a impugning the viability or the structural integrity of the tunnel. So those things coming together. That's that's what the fresh thinking has delivered. But again for the for the for your peace of mind, I'm still going to check all of those things and with. Andy Byford, president of New York City transit two one two four three three WNYC two one two four three three nine six nine to raise your hands here in the green space.

And I also want to say it's just so refreshing gentlemen, that's working for the MTA kids more about our safety. I am so sick of everybody trying to do things fast.
