Building for the Future
Expanding Our Network
In some places—like Manhattan's East Side and coming into New York City from Long Island—our system was simply not built to handle the demand it's facing today as the region continues to grow. We're addressing these constraints by expanding our transportation network for the first time in over 60 years.
We've already made enormous progress on the three largest transportation projects in the entire country: Second Avenue Subway, East Side Access—bringing the LIRR into Grand Central Terminal—and the extension of the subway line to Manhattan's Far West Side. Each of these projects will improve the reliability of our service by giving customers new ways to get where they're going—to, from, and within New York City.
