Re: ''New Yorkers are freaking out that Amazon's HQ2 could cripple the subway system, but...''

25K employees

According to the 2016 Hub Bound Report, 90K riders use all 4 Queens to Manhattan crossings between 8-9am. Whether it's 25K or 12K, the number of new riders represents a major increase.

N.B. the peak hourly volume of inbound passengers on the 14th St Tunnel is 23K. Look at all the gymnastics the MTA and NYCDOT are doing to provide alternate access for them. The absolute number of new Amazon users would be comparable.
