While a push is being made for parity in upstate roads and bridges funding, the Riders Alliance on Monday is releasing an analysis the found the Metropolitan Transportation Authority could receive billions of dollars less in state-based support than the Department of Transportation over a comparative five-year period.

The analysis comes as lawmakers — mainly those who represent suburban and upstate areas — are pushing to have a boost in spending for capital projects that benefit roads and bridges nuder the DOT’s capital plan.

But the Riders Alliance compared funding sources for the MTA’s 2015-2019 capital program with expected funding sources for the five year plan for the Department of Transportation.

The group found the state has pledged $8.3 billion in the MTA five-year program, while it is backing $11.9 billion for the DOT’s five-year capital plan, along with an additional $2 billion for the state Thruway.

At the same time, the state’s contribution makes up 31 percent of the overall MTA five-year capital program. When it comes to the DOT plan, the state’s share is actually 59 percent.

The analysis also found:

o $2.5 billion New York City contribution
o $5.89 billion in MTA bonds backed by fares and tolls
o $1.85 billion in pay-as-you-go capital from MTA coffers
o $1.16 billion in MTA real estate sales and other MTA sources
• In contrast, municipalities and road users are not making a direct contribution to the NYSDOT five-year plan.

“The conventional wisdom says that the MTA is getting more state money than roads and bridges, but a basic review of the budget shows that the opposite is true,” said Riders Alliance Executive Director Jon Raskin. “Governor Cuomo is proposing to put real cash into highways and roads and bridges, but the MTA is just getting an IOU and a promise to revisit the issue sometime down the line. Public transit is literally bursting at the seams, and delays are skyrocketing, but Governor Cuomo is still playing games instead of actually putting in the money that would address the problem.”

The group is also raising concerns there’s no new money for the MTA in Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s $154 billion spending plan, which includes a reiterated vow to contribute an additional $7.3 billion, but not a timetable.
