What's The [Data] Point? Episode 104 -- 24/7 - The Future of the Subways with MTA Leaders Sarah Feinberg and Janno Lieber [You can download What's The [Data] Point? wherever you get your podcasts, including on iTunes]
24/7 is the number of hours and days New Yorkers traditionally have had access to the subway system. In response to the pandemic the MTA suspended overnight service to clean and disinfect the subway and give riders the confidence they need to return to the system. The pandemic decimated revenue and ridership this past year, but with an infusion of federal funds and slowly returning ridership, the MTA is fiscally stable--however, they're still not out of the woods. Today's guests are two leaders who will chart and manage the course forward for the MTA: New York City Transit Interim President Sarah Feinberg, and Chief Development Officer of the MTA Janno Lieber.
