Re: IND Second system

As far as the railroads and subways are concerned, as important as the work from home trend may be is the exodus to the suburbs, where regulation and expenses are less. Railroads will need to adapt to a world where central business districts aren't the only places that people want to go. Those companies that do have offices will have them in less-expensive, safer places with lighter regulation.

That's part of it, yet the real change may be adapting to travel patterns which are more spread out, in other words ridership that isn't so heavily peaked during rush hours. That's not necessarily a terrible thing, as heavily peaked service is inefficient and expensive to provide.
