Yes it is. 74th to 33rd by October. 33rd to Hudson Yds by December. Testing, of course.

Communications-based train control

CBTC is a continuous, automatic train control system utilizing high-resolution train location determination, independent from track circuits; continuous, high-capacity, bidirectional train-to-wayside data communications; and trainborne and wayside processors capable of implementing Automatic Train Protection (ATP) functions, as well as optional Automatic Train Operation (ATO) and Automatic Train Supervision (ATS) functions (from IEEE 1474 standard).

CBTC is a railway signaling system that makes use of the telecommunications between the train and track equipment for the traffic management and infrastructure control. By means of the CBTC systems, the exact position of a train is known more accurately than with the traditional signaling systems. This results in a more efficient and safe way to manage the railway traffic. Metros (and other railway systems) are able to improve headways while maintaining or even improving safety (from Wikipedia).

Cortland Street station on the "1" train, closed since 9/11, will not open until end of next year at the earliest.

What is the reason for the decrease, albeit marginal, in patronage over the past 2 years? This despite some new station and line openings.

The M and W now have countdown clocks in all stations, but it looks like the N isn't complete yet between Coney Island and 59th st in Brooklyn.

So in the next month we can look forward to the B Q and hopefully the rest of the N too

Though the placement of said count down clocks are pretty appalling.

NYC metro is a good example of public transportation.They could make it longer but it wasn't necessary at the time and quality is more important than number of cars.

Actually, expansion was, and still is, very necessary. World events are what caused money for expansion to run out and needed system work to be deferred.

We can't focus solely on playing catch up. Proper expansion is still needed. And I'll stop myself before I go on another rant on how SAS as it's currently being built is a failure for this city.

Unfortunately I think the livery is new and permanent. The renderings for the R211s (with the open gangways) from the governor's office show that livery.

IMO, the black and red faceplates on the front of the NTT cars go really well with the stainless steel and look new and modern. The blue livery on the side of the cars (as well as the new buses) just look unequivocally terrible.

Does anyone know if there are plans to get rid of the flags on at least remove them from future cars? I understanding putting them on temporarily after 9/11 but now they're just ridiculous. They're so big and they're on every single carriage.

So true. I remember riding on the Lo-v cars back in the 60s.. they were dim...and the lights flickered..

as a rail fan I really enjoy the noise of a Lo-v..
