Discussion relating to the past and present operations of the NYC Subway, PATH, and Staten Island Railway (SIRT).

Governor Cuomo has been touting a lot of transportation projects recently, including station modernization's and facelift's for the NYC Subway, WiFi and charging on trains and in stations, etc.

For the stations, attached is a list of potential closing in PDF format. By the way, I count 32 (if you include SIR), not 30.


Snips, and a good amount of snark LOL:
MTA Will Completely Close 30 Subway Stations For Months-Long "Revamp"

The MTA confirmed its intention to phase out the MetroCard completely.
Cuomo also promised system-wide Wi-Fi by the end of the year, and cellphone service in 2017, plus USB charging stations in 200 subway cars this year and 400 more next year. All new buses added to the system this year will have Wi-Fi. The number of buses with Wi-Fi and charging ports should clock in over 1,000 by 2018.
MTA Chairman Thomas Prendergast took to the podium Friday as well, promising to "re-envision" 30 subway stations by 2020. The MTA plans to make these stations "cleaner, brighter... easier to navigate, with better and more intuitive wayfinding, as well as a modernized look and feel." This means more On The Go touch screens, new signage, new lighting.

Rather than close these stations on nights and weekends to accomplish this "renewal"—the Governor described the current approach as "piecemeal"—the MTA will shut down entire stations for an average six to twelve-months per station to expedite renovations. Will your neighborhood's subway station be one of them?
