The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) Board and Committee meetings will be held later this month. On Monday, Sept. 19 starting at 8:30 a.m. and continuing throughout the day, MTA Board committee chairs will convene meetings of the Bridges and Tunnels, Long Island Rail Road, Metro-North Railroad, New York City Transit and Bus, Diversity, Capital Program, and Finance. On Wednesday, Sept. 21 a meeting of the full MTA Board will begin at 10:00 a.m.
MTA Board and Committee meetings will provide an opportunity for the public to weigh in on Authority business, for up to 60 minutes, from either the MTA’s 2 Broadway headquarters or a remote location. Speakers will be allotted up to two minutes each. Public speakers will continue to register on the day of the meeting. Any additional speakers who cannot be accommodated within 60 minutes will have the opportunity to provide video comments that will be sent to members of the board and posted online.
A post-meeting news conference will begin approximately 30 minutes after the conclusion of the board meeting on Sept. 21. Accredited news media representatives are invited to join and ask questions at the news conference either in-person or via Zoom.
Members of the public at committee and board meetings are required to adhere to the MTA’s Code of Conduct. For safety reasons, the following protocols will be in effect on Monday, Sept. 19 and Wednesday, Sept. 21:
- Capacity for the public is limited to 75 people, who will be admitted on a first come, first served basis. There will be an overflow room that can hold up to an additional 25 members of the public.
- Anyone who feels ill is asked to stay home and seek advice from a healthcare provider.
