I agree. Why would the "funding" dry up? The MTA get Federal GRANTS not funding. Most of its funding come from the State Of New York.

But funding in the FAST Act has been authorized for 5 years...appropriations could be affected by yearly finagling, but it isn't likely.

The only thing that would significantly change is priorities, depending on who is chosen to be Transportation Secretary: the focus on multi-modalism, complete streets, etc may not be as strong as it is now, towards the end of the current administration.

Dude that might be the mother of all understatements, hopefully we can start Gateway and make some progress on Utica Ave before it goes away

Financing and funding for capital projects and the like will remain relatively stable. Gateway included.

Gateway, thankfully, is a bit bigger than Amtrak thanks to the fact that the existing tubes simply need a complete overhaul, anyways. There is no "Do Nothing" alternative, in this case. And again, the DOT/FRA enjoy a certain degree of discretion. I'm not at all worried about capital projects, honestly. Worse case scenario is that Federal grants and TIFIA (e.g. the matching funds) could become less generous, but they won't disappear.

If you must worry about something, it should be Amtrak, generally: funding levels, privatization, and whether they just downright have a future.

Ya I forgot about that, sheesh. With any luck the there are enough republicans that are against a large spending package that democrats are needed to pass it and they can write some Amtrak Funding into the bill.

Besides, Trump got in on rural votes, and a lot of the long-distance passenger trains are critical to rural communities. I could actually see him trying to push for expanded long-distance service.

Post industrial suburbs, cities and towns could have a lot of old railway lines, that you could re use for a local train or tube service.

If we continue this line of thought we should move it to the US Railways/US Regional Rail threads

Perhaps there are also some old or not often used lines, that could be integrated in the New Yorker Subway?

Following the victory of the Cubs in the World Series and the election of Donald Trump as president, will the United States see a third "hell freezes over" moment in 2016?

Its not just millennials living on 2nd Ave. There's lots of elderly.

And it should be the polluting corporations paying for this.

Yes, I am being sarcastic, and millennials are beginning to disappoint me for reasons other than gentrification. More and more the "millennials are gonna save us" thing is turning out to be a farce. They're just as quick to run to the burbs when that grass looks greener, and aren't really the social angels some thought they were, in terms of justice or responsibility. I do find it funny how people in the UES talk about "getting in now" before the SAS opens and the rents start skyrocketing, as if the upper sides were a bargain now.
