MTA Board Meeting, May 2020

Updated Sep 18, 2020

About the meeting

Because of the ongoing COVID-19 public health crisis, we changed how our May 2020 board meeting worked. The MTA Chairman convened a one-day, virtual board and committee meeting on Wednesday, May 20.

We want to do everything we can to keep the public, our employees, and our board members safe and healthy.

The meeting included the full MTA board and the following committees:

  • Long Island Rail Road and Metro-North Railroad
  • New York City Transit
  • MTA Bridges and Tunnels
  • Finance
  • Audit
  • Diversity
  • Capital Program Oversight Committee
