New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on Thursday reached out to the private sector to help improve New York City's aging subway system. According to Cuomo business and civic organizations could each contribute $250,000 to join a "partnership council" and clean up dirty, decrepit areas. Such an approach could open the door to subway stations branded with corporate names. On Tuesday, Metropolitan Transportation Authority Chairman Joseph Lhota laid out an $836 million plan to immediately fix the more than century-old subway system's biggest issues, including repairing 1,300 signals by the end of 2018.
