UPDATE (02.28.2021): Updated commentary on Central Park West.
On today’s edition of the NYTIP INSIDER, I will briefly discuss the long-term vision for NYTIP, which may mean making a few tough concessions generally opposed by transit advocates.
On this edition of the NYTIP INSIDER, I explore a controversial topic – the proposed LaGuardia Airport (LGA) AirTrain. If you’ve read my SAS/LGA extension post, you know that I strongly prefer a subway extension. 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 (06.22.2021): Post substantially updated with revised subway extension options for SAS Phase 2 and LaGuardia Airport.
Welcome to my ongoing NYTIP series! In the next series of posts, I will expound on point 2 in my three-point plan to fix the NYC Subway – extend. I’ll begin with Phase 2 of the Second Avenue Subway (SAS) and rail service to LaGuardia Airport. The current plans fall short, so allow me to discuss a better way.[let’s do this!]
