NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Transit advocate Gene Russianoff showed up at a Metropolitan Transportation Authority meeting Wednesday carrying what appeared to be an oversized MetroCard. But instead, it read “Cuomo Card.”
If the MTA is going to get the money it needs to improve the system, Gov. Andrew Cuomo must stand up for riders, Russianoff said.
“We’re calling him out,” Russianoff, of the Straphangers Campaign, told WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell.
