Report says MTA subway system needs $60 billion in upgrades, repairs

NEW YORK (WABC) -- There's new information on the much needed overhaul to fix the city's failing subway system.

A new report suggests it will cost $60 billion to make the necessary upgrades.

A panel of state leaders and transportation experts came up with that number.

The group is urging state lawmakers to approve congestion pricing to cover the cost, by tolling cars entering the busiest parts of Manhattan.

Governor Andrew Cuomo says congestion pricing is a top priority in the New Year.
