The Democratic-led state Senate on Wednesday announced plans to hold five public hearings on mass transit issues facing New York statewide.

The first hearing will take place next Tuesday in Manhattan, presumably focusing on the troubles facing the New York City subway system.

The rest will be held in the Hudson Valley, Buffalo, Syracuse and on Long Island. No dates have been given for those just yet.

The hearings will focus on the management of the MTA, issues facing ridership and upstate funding.

“Improving New York’s outdated and crumbling transit systems is a crucial challenge that we must meet,” Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins said. “These hearings will ensure that New Yorkers throughout the state will be able to share their priorities and discuss these important issues directly with their elected leaders. I commend Senators Kennedy and Comrie for organizing these hearings and working with their Senate Majority colleagues to improve our state’s infrastructure, MTA, LIRR, Metro-North, Bee-Line Bus, Metro Rail, NFTA, CDTA, RTS, Centro, CEATS, C Tran, and other mass transit systems.”

Gov. Andrew Cuomo this year is pushing a plan for congestion pricing in order to bolster the MTA’s funding as well as an overall of the authority’s structure.
