The Impossible Dream: A One-Seat Ride to JFK
Ben Oldenburg previews a new brief from the Regional Plan Association [pdf] about the options for creating a one-seat transit ride to New York's JFK International Airport.
In all, RPA has identified five options for this hypothetical future, as part of a larger ongoing regional comprehensive planning effort called "A Region Transformed" (also known as the Fourth Regional Plan).
The brief lists five options, none of which, notes Oldenburg, are easy:
LIRR Airport Express
2nd Ave Subway Extension to Airport
3rd Avenue Express
The brief details the pros and cons of each of these options. Expect to see the full "A Region Transformed" plan released in 2017.
