Eye on the Future
Welcome to the latest MTA "Eye on the Future," in which we present capital projects that are planned to be advertised from March 2014 – September 2014. The "Eye" is hosted on our MTA Capital Program web site, which assembles key information and resources about the Capital Program in one convenient location. It is another part of how we are changing the way we do business and we hope that you find it to be useful.
The MTA Capital Program is not only very important for the safety and reliability of the MTA transportation system; it is also vital to the regional economy. As described in this issue of the "Eye," the MTA is preparing to undertake approximately $4 billion in capital work that spans many areas, including civil, structural, and electrical, as well as new technologies. Based on the October 2009 APTA publication on the Economic Impact of Public Transportation Investments, this amount of investment is projected to create more than 98 thousand jobs and generate close to $17 billion in economic activity for the New York region. These projects are vital to the reliability, growth and resiliency of the system and contribute to the regional economy. We look forward to your participation.
Contractors and suppliers have a critical stake in the success of the Capital Program. We appreciate your interest in and support of the projects included in this issue of the "Eye."
Thomas F. Prendergast
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
