The New York State Department of Transportation operates and maintains one of the finest transportation systems in the world. We manage over 16,000 miles of state highways and 7,700 bridges. Our annual budget is in excess of five billion dollars, which includes over one and one half billion dollars for our highway and bridge capital program and two billion dollars for mass transportation operating assistance. Professional and technical personnel make up a major portion of the 10,000+ person work force. Assignments are located in our Main Office in Albany and in each of the 11 Regional Offices throughout New York State.
On a larger scale, The New York State Department of Transportation is responsible for:
- Coordinating and assisting in the development and operation of transportation facilities and services for highways, railroads, mass transit systems, ports, waterways and aviation facilities.
- Administering a public safety program for railroads and motor carriers engaged in intrastate commerce.
- Providing oversight in matters relative to the safe operation of bus lines, commuter railroads and subway systems that are publicly subsidized through the Public Transportation Safety Board.
