    “If Only There Was Some Slack in Trans-Hudson Transit to Absorb Disenchanted NJ Car Commuters (NYT).” You’re referring to the road space to add additional bus lanes, and congestion pricing? But isn’t the Port Authority Terminal space a limiter?

    I think they may have mean NJTrains through the non-existent gateway or A.R.C. tunnel.

    So, the approach to the Lincoln that is being repaired is not the “helix” that curves down into the tunnel? (The NYTimes photo is of the helix I think)

    Regarding LIRR and MNR, the MTA should look to London, where TFL created Overground services using their equivalent of our commuter railroads, which tie into the transit network seamlessly and use the same tap card (Oyster) as the subways and buses, capping daily fares in lieu of expensive passes. Expensive commuter trains which require separate tickets and deny boarding to NYC residents even as they stop at their stations to let suburbanites disembark are not hallmarks of good transit.
