Two New York federal legislators are looking to dedicate $300 million each year in federal funds toward resiliency improvements for the nation’s public transit systems. 

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and Congressman Adriano Espaillat, who represents upper Manhattan and the Bronx, introduced the Resilient Transit Act of 2022, which would give the additional funds to various government agencies overseeing public transit around the country, each year between 2023 and 2026.
