The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is North America's largest transportation network, serving a population of 15.3 million people in the 5,000-square-mile area fanning out from New York City through Long Island, southeastern New York State, and Connecticut.
It drives the New York regional economy by opening up countless job opportunities for millions – jobs that are miles from home are e...asy to get to with our subways, buses, and commuter trains.

MTA bridges and tunnels carry more than 297 million vehicles a year – more than any bridge and tunnel authority in the nation.
