It's not just the subway that's running late. So is Governor Cuomo.
He's yet to name a panel tasked with addressing the transit funding crisis - as agreed to four months ago when he signed the $168 billion dollar state budget.
"His feet aren't being held to the fire. That's why I'm here. I think he's kind of ignoring it, trying to make it go away without doing anything," said Tara Strome of the Riders Alliance.
On Thursday, advocates from the Riders Alliance delivered a letter to the governor's Midtown office. It demands that Cuomo put together the panel so it can fulfill its central mission - developing a plan to raise money by charging vehicles entering the most congested parts of Manhattan.
"Words are great, but we've been waiting so long. Last year, he came out and said, 'I support congestion pricing.' But what happened in the budget?" said Rebecca Bailin of the Riders Alliance.
The budget took an initial step, imposing surcharges for certain trips south of 96th Street beginning next January - $2.75 if it is booked through ride-hailing apps like Uber and $2.50 on a conventional taxi.
The Governor touted the surcharge as "the first phase" of congestion pricing - one that could generate more than $400 million annually for the MTA. But critics call it a half-hearted measure that would not raise anywhere near what the cash-starved transit system needs.
"It's never been so obvious that there is a real crisis here and it won't be fixed without billions of dollars.... riders cannot wait another budget cycle for Governor Cuomo and our legislature to act," Bailin said.
A Cuomo spokesman said it was the governor who "singlehandedly revived" the idea of congestion pricing - which fell flat a decade ago when it was pushed by then mayor Michael Bloomberg, and which Mayor Bill de Blasio opposes.
The would-be board's review is supposed to be done by the end of this year.
The governor's office said the working group will be appointed in the coming days and consist of "as many stakeholders as possible."
And if the push for full-fledged congestion pricing continues to limp along, the advocates say they'll once again state their cases right here at the Governor's front door.
