Triboro Rail Link Proposed

(Regional Plan Association / City Limits)

City Limits has a story about an innovative Regional Plan Association concept called The Triboro, that would provide hard-to-reach points in the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens with a rail link. The out-of-the-box thinking calls for use of existing rail lines for commuters that will reach from Co-op City to Bay Ridge.

The proposal was introduced in a bill by a Brooklyn assembly member to insist on an MTA study. Assembly Member Latrice Walker says this is the right time to take a look at the possibilities with congestion pricing in the offing, traffic at a standstill all over the city, as well as four new rail stations coming to the Bronx.

Th potential convenience would be considerable as the new rail link would include 22 stops along the way connecting the three boroughs.

Cost estimates are between $1 and $2 billion, which City Limits says would be markedly cheaper than the LIRR / Grand Central link, which is priced at $11 billion.
