IIRC this is the stuff funded by One Vanderbilt.

TBH i'm surprised new construction doesn't come with transportation impact fees split 50/50 with DOT and MTA, impact fees are heavily used elsewhere in the country. You'd think that New York politicians would love a new source of revenues that is politically popular.

It's more of that "we didn't think of it, therefore we cannot use it" mentality at work here. That and the perceived fear that forcing developers to compensate for the increased foot traffic their buildings will bring may somehow scare them off.

These are not capacity improvements, they are access improvements. Capacity improvements create more TPH.
