Abstract and Keywords
This article presents a description on the transportation policy, politics and network in New York State. As the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) and New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) plans confirm, the primary challenge facing New York is the maintenance and improvement of the current transportation infrastructure. The key transportation issues facing New York State in 2010 are discussed. It is noted that the new roads, together with the parkways and expressways, continued the transformation of the structure of the state's metropolitan areas. By 1980, the emphasis of transportation policy and politics in New York State shifted from expansion to rehabilitation and upgrading of existing capital assets. Much of the money used for transportation maintenance and improvement has come from the issuance of long-term debt. The state significantly increased its investment in capital renewal and improvement projects for the road and transit systems since the 1980s.
