The Metropolitan Transportation Authority ("MTA"), in a collaborative effort with the City of New York (the “City”) and New York City Economic Development Corporation (“NYCEDC”), has identified seven (7) New York City Transit Authority (“NYCT”) Master Lease properties for disposition through NYCEDC’s request for proposals (“RFP”) process for City-owned properties. The seven Master Lease properties (the “Properties”) are owned by the City but used and operated by NYCT under the Master Lease. The Properties are currently no longer required for transit-related operations and are made available for disposition and re-development. The goals of the RFPs, among others, are to reduce overhead costs and maximize value from the Properties for NYCT and the City.

The RFP provides information on the available property or location, explains how to prepare a proposal, and outlines the terms of prospective leases or licenses. The RFP describes improvements that the operator of a business is expected to make to the property as a condition of the agreement. As part of an RFP, a site visit will generally be arranged to permit the prospective proposers to view the property or premises being offered. The Real Estate Department seeks proposals from as many potential operators as possible, evaluates all of the proposals submitted, negotiates terms and conditions, and concludes the transaction.
MTA invites all interested parties to submit a proposal in response to an announcement of an RFP. The specific requirements of any RFP and the documents required in support of any proposal will be detailed in the RFP information packet which is available on-line via the links shown above.
All inquiries are encouraged, and the MTA welcomes the participation of minorities, women, and other disadvantaged groups in the business opportunities available on MTA property. The MTA Office of Civil Rights at 646-252-1364 is available to provide assistance to applicants. No proposer will be subject to discrimination on the basis of race, creed, color, national origin, marital status, gender, sexual orientation, age, or disability.
