OK. The way you wrote your original post it seemed obvious that the entire line in 350 people per day. To be honest even 6,000 is not all that much, but I guess it is explained by the parallel bus line.

P.S. I spent 2 years in Philly, but lived in university area and never used any other local public transport than subway...

Nice shots Nexis. Are they any louder than the PL42s?

In eastern Bronx, MTA is planning to add 4 train stations and run Metro North trains to Penn Station.



Co-Op City Station at Erskine Pl/Hunter Ave





Morris Park Station at Bassett Ave/Morris Park Ave



Renderings and locations of Hunts Point and Parkchester stations will be revealed at community meetings next month:

I apologize because I usually hate these types of questions, but what are the chances of this being realized?

A good chance. MTA is holding meetings and will likely build these stations once capacity at Penn opens up following the opening of East Side Access, allowing LIRR to GCT. This isn't one of those pipe dreams that Nexis made up but an actual plan by an actual transit agency committed to making it happen.

Thanks for the answer. I had no idea that Metro North could run on East Side Access, and then from there to Penn. Just hope East Side Access is done by the new delivery date of 2019.

East Side Access is for LIRR.
Penn Station Access is for MNRR.

These are two different programs. There will be no direct trains btw Penn and GCT.

Why no stop in Queens where it intersects LIRR or some subway lines?

We will have to wait and see if there is space left over from the ESA and Harold Interchange Upgrades for a Sunnyside station , another Woodside station would have to wait intill the NEC upgrade is done in 2025.

It seems like they could've deviated the path of that new line to run through Grand Central, though I'm sure that would be significantly more difficult than it looks.

If you have $7 trillion lying around, please send the check to MTA, as I think it's still not too late.
