Extensions of subway?

Recommended Posts

What are your ideas for expansion of the NYC Subway? Here are mine:

* A Second Avenue Subway extension to the Bronx going under 3rd Avenue up to Webster Av in Fordham ((Q) would serve the line)

* A branch of the Pelham line that runs under Lafayette Av to Throgs Neck (would turn south at E Tremont Av and terminate at Randall Av) (8) would serve the line

* An (L) extension up 10 Av to the Upper West Side (terminates at 72 Street w/ transfer to the (1)(2)(3))

* A line running under 23 St and Avenue C in Lower East Side; (8) would serve the line terminating at East Broadway w/ transfer to the (F)

I know and grew up with people from Gerritsen Beach. I can safely say that they are NOT interested in a subway there.

Marble Hill - 225 St (1) (all times)

215 St (all times)

207 St (1) (all times)

Dyckman St (1) ( all times,  switches to local tracks and would transfer to proposed express tracks just south of this station)

i know, but skip stop service led to long wait times and a decrease of ridership on the Broadway - 7 Av line. skip stop service only reduced travel time by 2.5 - 3 minutes. although skip - stop service is cheaper, express tracks would be more beneficial in the long run.  an express service (in this case, the (9))  would greatly reduce travel times for current (1) riders north of 96 St (1) (2) (3). Train frequencies north of  Dyckman St (1) would increase along with express stations south of Dyckman St (1). just saying
