Regional Plan Assoc. Releases Transportation Investment Blueprint

A transportation blueprint for the city and Northern New Jersey was released today by the Regional Plan Association.

The plan includes nearly 40 recommendations, including upgraded subway, bus, commuter rail, ferry, and light rail projects. The goal is to provide transportation to under-served areas of the city.

The recommendations include adding high-speed ferry service to parts of Brooklyn and the Bronx. The group also wants to see an express bus lane on the Staten Island Expressway and an extension of Nostrand Avenue to Kings Highway. They want to see the conversion of the Long Island Rail Road Atlantic Branch into three new stations

In addition, they're recommending a light rail loop in Manhattan, in addition to other transit upgrades in the borough.
