Renewing the New York Railroads

TransitCenter's “Renewing the New York Railroads" report analyzes the potential benefits of operating LIRR and Metro-North more like the subway within New York City’s boundaries, with affordable fares and more frequent service. Given the extra capacity created by the opening of Grand Central Madison and the railroads’ sluggish ridership recovery from the pandemic, now is the perfect time to go big on operational changes that would attract new riders and make the system more equitable, accessible, and relevant for all New Yorkers.
