Frequently Asked Questions about ReThinkNYC
ReThinkNYC Trunk Line Proposal
"Sounds like Grand Central would no longer be a train station! Or would it be used only for commuters to the city from the north?"
Grand Central would still be a train station. Some trains on the Metro-North Lines would go to GCT and others to Port Morris/Sunnyside/Penn Station/Secaucus. More here is available here: www.rethinknyc.com/newrail.
ReThinkNYC Subway Proposals
Brilliant! This will much improve the NYC region. Hey can you also work on a plan that will get the subways to be efficient?
In general, we see the opportunity for subways and commuter rail to operate synergistically. More specifically, our plan to extend the Second Avenue Subway (Q) to the Bronx where it would replace the (5) Dyre Avenue Line would open up more capacity on the (2) and (5) lines downstream in the Bronx and Manhattan.
We've also proposed extending the (7) and PATH lines to an expanded Secaucus Junction.
