Man those second generation full color clocks look soooooo much better than those ancient LED dot signs with the goofy red and green that look like an old 1987 stock ticker.

RPA pitches a pair of mega projects to avert a hellish transit future



Quote:
An influential transportation and infrastructure think tank and advocacy group predicts the number of city commuters from across the Hudson River will greatly outstrip capacity in the coming years and wants planners and government officials to think holistically to solve the problem.

The Regional Plan Association said that mega projects such as a $10 billion plan to replace the Port Authority Bus Terminal are imagined in isolation, without a thought to complementary developments.

Rather than just build a larger bus terminal on the West Side, for instance, the RPA recommended that an ancillary bus facility be built in the basement of the Javits Center, an idea first floated last year by a private sector design team that responded to a solicitation by the Port Authority for ideas on how the terminal project could be reimagined.


While seemingly a far-fetched concept then, the RPA said it would be the most cost effective and efficient way to create a new facility that would boost bus capacity into the city, the mode of transportation that most New Jersey commuters use to access Manhattan. A basement bus terminal would allow the existing terminal on West 42nd Street to be renovated, rather than razed and replaced, to extend its lifespan by another 20 to 30 years.
