Let's be honest. There are far too many cars on NYC streets...on main roads, there should be an Lightrail like service to encourage folks out of their autos.
Trains should have street signal tech that gives them priority,no parking period... And raised right of way.
The city could pull it off if it really wanted to.
Furthermore, an LRT could be built along the Staten Island expressway,across the Bridge to Brooklyn, up Third avenue to the Battery Tunnel to the WTC.
Branch lines could be built to the Bay Ridge line.. Connection to the Utica Avenue line, and others.
If planned right, the city could have a vast network of street level rapid transit with underground sections,that will serve everyone at half the price of building new underground systems.
All we need is someone with the balls to get the ball rolling.
