Infrastructure Event: Link Explained

Join the Coro Infrastructure Group to hear Jen Hensley, General Manager of Link speak about an innovative public-private partnership which is changing the way people interact with the City. Above and beyond the technology, this project represents an enviable trifecta of providing services for residents and visitors, costing nothing to the municipality to install, operate or maintain, and generating a projected $500 million of revenue for New York City.
