I don't even know if this is the adequate thread but I wasn't to sure which one it should be instead so here goes:
There are plans for a light rail line along the Western Coast of Staten Island, connecting to the SIR at one of its southern stations (Pleasant Plains or Arthur Kill were named as examples) and then going all the way up, crossing the Bayonne bridge and terminating at the southern end of the HBLR.
Now those plans seem to be quite concrete already and concstruction could potentially start as early as 2018 but there is a petition to be signed for Cuomo. I will paste the link now so maybe we can boast the project.

And now its delayed 2 days into Q3. Woop-de-do.
7 train extension will indeed open 2015.07.02. It's official.

You were right. I was wrong. My deepest apologies.

Dude, replying to old post == bad etiquette

And apparently they're still deciding the final date, and July 2nd is still in the lead.

It's not about winning or losing.

It's about being polite.

Maybe there's an ironic point he's trying to make here; that the NYCS sucks compared to most other contemporary transit systems lol.

Certainly the clearest representation I've seen of peak and express services. And a nice small map (caused by rotating Long Island) makes it possible to handle it without getting into someone else's personal space.

The Geography of Manhattan and Long Island (if you rotate it back) isn't far off, and there is no reason to keep every little kink, as the official map does.

I think it's a big improvement from the first version. Brooklyn and the Bronx are closer to the real shape of the network, and he abandoned different shades of the line color for the express and local lines, which makes the map less cluttered.

The MTA’s Accessibility Gap

Quote:
The MTA, for all our complaints, does several commendable things. Its customer costs are relatively low, especially when accounting for its 24/7 service, relative train frequency, and extensive system. However, one area where they aren’t so great is on accessibility. Of the five largest subway/light rail systems in the country, two (San Francisco and DC) are fully accessible. Two more have far more than half of their stations accessible (Boston—only some Green Line stations non-accessible; Chicago—primarily some Blue and Red line stations non-accessible). This leaves New York. While there are 490 stations in the New York system (including Staten Island), barely more than 100 stations are accessible:

The Rest of the line doesn't have any ADA stations so its not shown.
