This Week: Transpo Planning for NYC and Beyond

Looking for something to do this evening? Choose from one of four livable streets events, three of which pertain to the future of regional transportation. Also, TA volunteers continue their work for safer streets in the Bronx and Manhattan.

    • Today: The New York Metropolitan Transportation Council holds a Manhattan open house and webinar on the 2040 Regional Transportation Plan, the 25-year blueprint for multi-modal transportation strategies and investments in the NYMTC region. 4 to 8 p.m.
    • Today: The MTA will host a public information session with updates on proposed Metro-North service in the east Bronx, including four stations that would serve Morris Park, Co-op City, Hunts Point and Parkchester, providing connections to Penn Station, Westchester and Connecticut. 6:30 p.m.
    • Today: The Columbia Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation hosts a panel on transportation and regional economies, featuring David King, Juliette Michaelson, Ernest Tollerson, Robert Paaswell and Christian Wolmar. 6:30 p.m.
