Governor Cuomo Unveils Design Of Reimagined MTA Subway Cars

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today unveiled the design features of 1,025 new and reimagined subway cars – including vital enhancements to the exteriors and interiors of regular cars, wider doors, as well as the addition of up to 750 “Open Car End” designed-cars, which will reduce wait times and increase capacity. The Governor also previewed key elements that will be featured in the renovation of 31 subway stations throughout the New York Metropolitan Area, and announced that the first of several Requests for Proposals will be issued this week. The MTA is using design-build contracts to expedite the process and ensure the shortest timeframe for project completion. These vital investments are part of the $27 billion, five-year MTA Capital Program to renew and expand the MTA network. Governor Cuomo unveiled the ambitious design-plan at the Transit Museum in Brooklyn

Phil Cragmoore: Feel the Cuomo hatred.

I_Enjoy_Peace: No one thought to ask about adding Air Conditioning to the subway stations when that wasn't mentioned???
Don't get me wrong plan sounds promising and I sincerely appreciate my tax dollars going to a project of this undertaking with a seemingly thought out plan, which would limit government involvement,... but if you asked any average, daily commuter in New York, I guarantee the #1 request they'd ask for improvements with would be creating air conditioned subways. I can't imagine that isn't physically possible to do, but if it is, I will stand corrected. Just know that after going around and asking 10 people in my office, all 10, without being prompted, said "Air conditioned subways." (Granted, I'm asking whilst in the midst of a horrendous heat wave in the middle of August.)
That being said, I applaud the effort to progress and make NYC a more attractive/efficient place to live and work. More things like this should be taking place wherever possible.
