MTA to start a study to bring back the Bay Ridge Branch

Recommended Posts

The MTA will commence a study that will bring back passenger service to the Bay Ridge Branch, a line long served by freight trains. The article states that the study would be the first part towards a possible Triboro RX, a proposed train line that has been brought up constantly by politicians since the mid-1990s.

Let's see where this will go from here. It will be a pretty interesting study to look at. By the way, 2024 (5 years from the current time) will be the 100th anniversary of the final time the LIRR ran passenger service on the branch.

One of the most elaborate ideas of the MTA. How bout this. I’ll believe it when I see it.
