⁴ᴷ Rare: D Trains Running on the A Line
Quote:
Weekend construction in the Cranberry St Tunnel and on the Manhattan Bridge led to D trains being rerouted to the A line. After 59th St, all D trains ran on the A line to Chambers St, the last stop. This is a very unusual and rare reroute that does not occur frequently.

⁴ᴷ Whitehall Street Bound Q Train Action - With Announcements

Quote:
A mechanical issue with a train at Avenue H on the Brighton Line led to Q trains being terminated at Whitehall St on the R line. Check out the interesting announcements; they are unusually voiced by a male instead of a female.

Tenth Avenue 7 Train Station

Inside a request for proposals for the redevelopment of the Covenant House block on 10th Ave between 41st and 42nd street is this hopeful tidbit:

Quote:
the MTA is in the process of conducting a study on the feasibility of a Tenth Avenue station along the 7 train extension, with the goal being "arrive at a conceptual design of the station facilities and infrastructure on the Project Site".
As reported by curbed. The RFP (pdf) is quite firm on cooperation from the developer:

Quote:
the Developer will be expected to work with the MTA to finalize the MTA Easements and adjust
its Proposal accordingly. The Developer is encouraged to design and incorporate the MTA Easements so
that the MTA Easements appear uniform with the overall Project. The Contracts of Sale will require that, as
a Condition to Closing, the Developer shall have coordinated with the MTA.
Deadline to submit proposals is May 2nd.

Our First Look At The MTA's Interconnected "Human Centipede" Subway Trains



Quote:
If you spent this morning's post-blizzard subway commute crammed between an AM New York and an insufferably puffy jacket that smelled vaguely of a campfire, this new rendering of the MTA's open-gangway subway car prototypes might offer some hope.

Not too much hope, though: the MTA’s 2015-2019 capital plan only calls for purchasing ten of the open-gangway cars [PDF], and 940 with the usual design.

As Second Avenue Sagas notes, the MTA could potentially retrofit the others with the open plan, which increases capacity on the train by 8 to 10%, or amend the order to include more of them—those options might come up during the MTA’s Capital Program Oversight Committee meeting today.

Other cities utilize open gangways, like Berlin, Hong Kong, and Montreal, but the blog’s MTA sources say “there is a mix of agency fears at doing something viewed by New Yorkers as ‘different’ even if it exists elsewhere and some manageable engineering concerns about these types of cars’ ability to handle tight curves.”

Some of the new cars will be outfitted with digital video screens, charging stations, and wireless internet, which promise to keep you happy and distracted from the underlying infrastructure issues that will continue to plague the MTA until our public officials obtain the political courage to address them.

The MTA probably shouldn't have used the term "open gangway" in materials meant to be released to the public.

Open Subway Cars May Come to New York City as Early as 2020

The New York Times adds some detail to the articulated subway car news.

Another (fairly obvious) advantage besides the capacity increase:

Quote:
the design could help reduce so-called dwell times at stations, when trains are stopped as people jostle to depart and board trains. If passengers are standing in a crowded car, they can walk to the next car and exit there
Quote:
The authority wants to test one 10-car train in the system to determine whether to implement the model more broadly .. The new cars, known as R211s, will replace R46 cars, which run primarily on the A and R subway lines
The NYTimes also reported on articulated cars as recently as 2013. With an interesting historical tidbit:

Quote:
In 1924, the Brooklyn-Manhattan Transit Corporation introduced plans for the “Triplex,” with a hinged, multisectioned body. It operated on the B, D, N, Q and R lines over a period of 40 years, representing “the height of transit modernity” at a moment when elevated lines often still featured wooden cars, according to the New York Transit Museum
and this:

Quote:
Then there is the scourge of the sick passenger, most ominously on weekends or holidays like New Year’s Eve, Mr. Ross said, when evidence of overindulgence can occasionally find its way onto a car’s floor. “In the past, we’d be able to isolate that particular car and clean it,” .. separated cars had served another purpose for the city in a different age. “Remember the time when we were in the high-crime era and gangs were roaming through the trains?” he said. “Everybody loved the locked end doors.”

NYCís Finally Trying a Subway Design That Cuts Crowding and Delays


An open gangway subway train in Singapore. The design can increase capacity by 10 percent. Alstom Metro

New York Cityís subway system is among the most expansive, popular, and best in the world. Itís also insufferably crowded and ill-equipped to handle the rising ridership that comes with the cityís growth. But thereís hope for a subterranean transit future that doesnít look like rush hour in Tokyo: the Metropolitan Transportation Authority will experiment with open gangway cars.
Itís a simple trick used all over the world to ease crowding and reduce delays. Like on an articulated bus, individual cars arenít divided. In other words, the space between cars becomes usable, increasing a trainís capacity without adding length. And right now, anything that lets more people ride New Yorkís subway is a very good thing.
The cityís population is expanding in Brooklyn and Queens, straining a system already at capacity. Subway ridership on the system has spiked in recent years to levels not seen since the late 1940s. The MTA saw ridership climb 2.6 percent between 2013 and 2014 to 5.6 million riders each weekday. All told, some 1.8 billion people took the subway in 2014.
In response, the MTA has increased service and launched more bus rapid transit. Itís also expanding the subway system, building the Second Avenue line and extending the 7 line from Times Square to the west side of Manhattan. Those projects, however, are almost prohibitively expensiveóthe first phase of the Second Avenue project, which is expected to serve 200,000 daily riders with three new stations, will cost $4.45 billion. It should open in December, after nine years of construction.
All of which is to say, ďmore subwayĒ canít be the only answer to dealing with more riders. Thatís what makes open gangway train cars so appealing: They expand the systemís capacity without the labor and expense of expanding the system itself.
We want to look at all options as we move forward with the design of the next generation of subway cars. MTA spokesperson Kevin Ortiz
The design also reduces overcrowding in specific cars or areas, since riders can distribute themselves more easily. London found the design can increase capacity by as much as 10 percent. More than rescuing some poor soul from being lodged in someoneís armpit, dispersing passengers can reduce what the MTA calls dwell times, when the trainís sitting in a station, waiting for everyone to push their way out of or into particularly crowded cars. Thereís a potential safety benefit, too, since illegal or dangerous behavior is harder to hide in an open car.
