On this edition of the NYTIP INSIDER, I will discuss forthcoming updates to the enhanced NYC Subway that provide even greater improvements over the status quo.[Read On!]
A poem by nerdy.nel.[read it and weep]
the thoughts that pulse inside my head
won’t bring me back to days of dread
the light that shone from depth to breadth
shall shine once more past tears I shed
UPDATE (12.14.2021): Images now reflect updates to the enhanced NYC subway.
You might’ve noticed that I’ve temporarily unpublished most of my subway extension posts. The main reason is my evolving stance on regional rail – a hot topic in the transport advocacy space and on Transit Twitter. Find out what this means for NYTIP on this edition of the INSIDER![Read On…]
Welcome everyone! If you’ve read my blog over the last few years, you know I’m working on a personal project called the New York Transportation Improvement Plan, or NYTIP.

However, I must consider the very real possibility that Governor Cuomo gets what he wants regarding this AirTrain. If it gets built, what does that mean for NYTIP?
UPDATE (12.13.2021): Post revised to reflect updates to the enhanced NYC subway.
The novel coronavirus, a.k.a. COVID-19, wreaked havoc on mass transit systems nationwide. In NYC, lockdowns, telework, changes in commuting behavior, and increased wariness about transit use led to massive ridership drops on subways, buses, and commuter rail.
