UPDATE (06.28.2021): Post updated with a new extension option and revised commentary.

Welcome back to my ongoing NYTIP series! In my last post, I began expounding on point two in my three-point plan to fix the NYC Subway – extend – with SAS Phase 2X and an Astoria line extension to LaGuardia Airport. In this post, I will discuss subway extensions to Co-op City.

UPDATE (09.26.2021): Post substantially revised to reflect updates made to the preceding posts in this series. This update summarizes the latest version of the enhanced NYC subway.

Welcome back to my ongoing NYTIP series! When I introduced NYTIP, I outlined a three-point plan for fixing the NYC Subway system: enhance, extend, and expand. This post summarizes the last five posts, which addressed the first point – enhance.

NYTIP – enhancing the nyc subway: south bronx

UPDATE (09.13.2021): New image added. In a previous update, I substantially revised this post for clarity.

Welcome back to my ongoing NYTIP series! In my last post, I discussed the Eastern Parkway trunk line in Brooklyn served by the 2, 3, 4, and 5 lines. In this post, I will discuss the 2, 3, 4, and 5 lines in Upper Manhattan and The Bronx, and explain why de-interlining is extremely challenging.

NYTIP – enhancing the nyc subway: broadway and queens boulevard

UPDATE (09.18.2021): Several images updated. In an earlier update, I revised this post for clarity.

In my last post, I discussed the South Brooklyn de-interlining. So far, the de-interlining plans contemplated by NYTIP only involve operational changes. In this post, we’ll explore the Broadway (N, Q, R, and W) and Queens Boulevard (E, F, M, and R) trunk lines. While de-interlining the former is trivial, the latter is much more challenging.

NYTIP – enhancing the nyc subway: central park west

UPDATE (08.26.2021): Post revised for clarity.

In my last post, I introduced the New York Transportation Improvement Plan (NYTIP). In that post, I outlined a three-point plan for fixing the NYC Subway:

  • Enhance (minimize merging conflicts)
  • Extend (extend existing lines)
  • Expand (build new lines)

I’ll begin my series on point 1 – enhance – with the Central Park West (CPW) trunk line, which serves the A, B, C, and D trains.
