But I'll not go there because I quite agree with you. The Fed should get out of the highway business as well. All the do is collect a gasoline tax and then dole it out for pet projects for pet senators.
Eliminate fex road taxes and fed road monies, and let the states collect the taxes and use them as needed.
That said, The operation of transportation in and around NYC and the north east IS A NATIONAL INTEREST and SHOULD be funded.
But that will not happen so, plan B : Convert the Lincoln Tunnel, that third tube, into LRV use only, from there you can run LRV trains down both 34th Street and 43nd Street.
Make both 34th and 42nd int bus/LRV use only.
(Part of LION's plan to eliminate private cars south of 60th Street.0
