Transit officials are working to stabilize ridership numbers as the city continues to claw its way into a post-pandemic "new normal."

Governor Kathy Hochul signed the legislation, which is to promote cycling and pedestrian access at bridges and stations, on Tuesday.

Subway cars, for example, the comptroller notes, should be replaced every 40 years. Currently, about 40% of the MTA’s 6,500 subway cars are over 30 years of age.
