Video: Bronx High Schoolers Explain How MTA Funding Works in the City

This well-made video is the culmination of a special summer-long program for high school kids at the Center for Urban Pedology.

In our latest Urban Investigation, CUP worked with Teaching Artist Christina Houle and students from five Bronx high schools to investigate why transit costs what it does and who decides. Students interviewed a number of stakeholders like the chiefspokesman of the MTA, the executive director of a transit advocacy group, a New York State Assembly Member, and a community advocate. They created a short documentary video to share what they learned.

Check out the project page to read more about the students, the video project and about CUP.
