The New Jersey Transit Authority is working on a system that would make New York’s subway more efficient, reducing wait times by up to 60 percent.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio is a proponent of the plan, which is now under consideration by the MTA and New York State.
The agency is expected to unveil its results by next year.
But its new system would likely be less than what New York is accustomed to, said John Bailes, an associate professor of organizational behavior at the University of New Hampshire.
The MTA has experimented with new technology to make the subway more frequent.
But the most popular of these technologies is the countdown clock, which allows riders to wait in a line and the station to be automatically notified of a change in the train’s position.
Bailys study of New York Subway’s network found that wait times rose by about 80 percent when the countdown was switched to a clock, compared to when the clock was switched off.
“We’ve seen that it actually makes for a lot less delay in terms of how quickly trains are moving,” Bailis said.
“I don’t think it’s going to be a big impact on the overall quality of the system, but it’s certainly going to make things a little bit smoother for people.”
It’s not the only way that the subway has seen improvements since the start of the new century.
There are more trains and stations.
A lot more people are using the system.
And the MTA is working with the city to build a better subway station in Brooklyn.
The new system, known as the Regional Connector, will be a four-lane underground train, with two stations, the first on the Upper East Side.
New Jersey will be the last state to get a subway that runs at that speed.
The other three states, along with the District of Columbia, have their own trains that run at about the same speed, Bailies said.
The goal is to reduce wait times, he said.
New York City subway riders wait in line at the Upper West Side station in New York, Oct. 26, 2020.
New Yorkers are getting a better deal, said Michael Katz, a professor of transportation and transportation policy at Rutgers University.
The transit agency plans to pay the city more than $200 million to build and expand the Regional Expressway from the West Side to the East Side, with a new station at 36th Street.
New trains would come in a similar configuration to the ones in New Jersey, which could speed up trips.
But it would also mean that the number of cars would go up by more than 40 percent, Katz said.
Some people say it would be better for them if they could get a better fare, he added.
More than half of New Yorkers commute on a subway, which includes the subways in Queens and Brooklyn.
Many people travel on subways because they can get a cheaper fare than driving, and they can access the subway system more easily.
But most people would like to have a cheaper option.
The Regional Expressways will be designed for people who can’t afford to drive, said New York Transit Authority Executive Director Kevin Ortiz.
They will not have the same capacity as other transit options, he told NBC News.
What’s in it for the city?
For New Yorkers, the new train line will be cheaper.
It will be safer.
It should be easier to get around.
And New York could save money on maintenance and upgrades, said Bailers.
New construction projects that are underway, such as the elevated viaduct, will save money.
That’s because it’s not a big project and it can be completed on a shorter timeline, Balsillie said.
There’s a lot of money in the system to be saved, he pointed out.
