The Regional Plan Association, a respected 95-year-old advocacy group, is calling for major transportation improvements in New York City and the surrounding area so the region can continue growing. The group’s “Fourth Regional Plan” offers 61 long-term improvements for the area’s transportation network that would add new rail lines, tunnels and stations. The RPA report found that the New York metropolitan area could add 3.7 million more people and 2 million more jobs by 2040 if its ambitious recommendations are implemented. [Lohud]
