Today, New York’s commuter rail infrastructure is a nightmare. Fixing this starts with phase one of Amtrak’s Gateway project for two new Hudson River Tunnels. Former Vice President Joe Biden has said that all of us need to push for this effort. ReThinkNYC strongly agrees and we urge you to do the same by signing the petition to our elected officials.
ReThinkNYC is a comprehensive transportation proposal for building a world-class regional network in the New York City region.
The first step of the proposal, the Regional Unified Network (RUN), is a multi-stage program to establish a regional rail network, making it possible for users to get from anywhere to everywhere via mass transit.
By making a few crucial investments at key chokepoints, RUN unlocks the full potential of our mass transit system, laying the groundwork for further growth and expansion for decades to come. The full extent of the proposal, PLAN 2050, further presents potential transit projects throughout the region at various scales.
