I am surprised that didn't already exist.

the city that never sleeps will be taking a power nap --

gov cuomo and the mayor announce that starting in may they are going to shut down nyc transit every night to power clean the vehicles. 

they will make up for and pay for any essential night worker travel costs with shuttle busses, uber, lyft and the like, which is only around 10k people overnight these days.

This article is a bit deceptive in terms of new heavy rail construction. DC Metrorail is currently expanding 20 miles westward to Dulles Airport and Loudoun County, VA to the tune of about $6 billion. While the new line is not for the most part a subway it is certainly an extension of the existing system and not light rail. So there has been new construction of heavy rail since 1993.

 

The LA red line was extended to North Hollywood in 2000 or soon thereafter.  The Purple Line extension is being built as we speak beneath Wilshire to Century City.  The Phase 3 extension to UCLA and the Santa Monica border is fully funded.  

 

BART was extended on the peninsula to SFO & Milbrae in the 2000s, and the east bay line is under construction as we speak to the edge of DT San Jose.  A subway extension into DT San Jose is planned. 

 

In NYC, the #7 was extended to Hudson Yards in the 2010s, and the new Second Ave. line was built simultaneously. 

 

In the 2010s, the Miami Metrorail was extended to the airport.

mta chair pat foye puts trump's cdc on blast:

 

 

Foye also went on to blast the “latest guidance” from the Centers for Disease Control, which advised residents not to take public transportation during the pandemic.

 

“Encouraging people, especially those without cars and in congested areas like New York, not to take public transit is misguided,” Foye stated. “Transit is, and has long been, the safest way to move around any city. Our transit and bus system is cleaner and safer than it has been in history, as we clean and disinfect around the clock.

 

Everyone who rides the MTA is required to wear a mask, a uniform policy we adopted for our workforce before the CDC reversed its previous guideline and recommended all Americans wear masks. We will continue to take every possible action to protect public health and safety, and the federal government telling people not to ride mass transit sets us back decades.”

PA: NEXTransit looking at the future of transit in Allegheny County

The plan for the Pittsburgh region's public transportation future will be called NEXTransit, but where that system should serve and how it should get there will be determined over the next year.

https://www.masstransitmag.com/management/news/21140496/pa-nextransit-looking-at-the-future-of-transit-in-allegheny-county


"Nearly every problem that we have in the USA -- unaffordable health care, prison overpopulation, hyper militarization, climate change, racism, gun violence, poverty, poor education, urban sprawl and others -- cannot be positively addressed because bribery and conflicts of interest are legal under campaign finance laws which protect the uber-wealthy and the narrow self-interests who grossly benefit from our afflictions."

FTA advances KC Streetcar extension project to engineering phase
 

https://www.progressiverailroading.com/passenger_rail/news/FTA-advances-KC-Streetcar-extension-project-to-engineering-phase--60535

 

“The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) last week approved Kansas City Streetcar Authority’s (KCSA) Main Street extension project to enter the engineering phase of the federal Capital Investment Grants New Starts program.

...

“The approval moves the $351 million project into the final phase of the federal program, positioning it to receive a future federal grant.  The project team is seeking $174 million in federal funding to be combined with local funding, KCSA officials said in a press release.

 

“The KCSA plans to finalize a federal grant award in early 2021, begin construction by 2022 and open the route in 2025.“
*****

$350M for a 3.5 mile extension. It’s crazy how much light rail costs in this country. I’m still glad the project is moving forward.

Yes, I agree. And now I’m realizing I posted this in the wrong thread. Can you or one of the other move these KC streetcar posts to the Other States Light Raul / Streetcar thread? Sorry!

Meh, you can post a second one if you want there.  This thread is also appropriate as it's transit news.

Yeah, sorry, it dawned on me after I posted that I could just copy and paste my own post in the other thread.
