The system has currently been characterized by overcrowding and some other aspects of inconveniences. This has been partly caused by the fact that New York City is very overcrowded. The New York’s metropolitan transport authority has however initiated a policy that is aiming at replacing the subway trains in existence with the articulated train cars. This will improve the transport sector in New York City.
The New York City’s transportation system is a cooperation characterized by complex systems of infrastructure. New York is the most populous city in USA. It is also among the busiest cities in the United States. In every twenty-four seconds, a flight comes and leaves from one of the major airports in New York City. It has a transportation system that encompasses one of the biggest subway systems across the globe, an aerial tramway and the first vehicular tunnel that has been ventilated in the world. However, the transportation system is not meeting the demand of the commuters since the cars are characterized by overcrowding while the conditions of these trains are not up to standards (Flegenheimer 2). The city’s transportation authority has developed a policy that aims at replacing the subway trains with articulated trains. This scenario simply means that instead of the individuated cars making a large train the train is transformed into a single long train. This aspect is likely to bring numerous changes in the New York City’s transport sector as a result of advantages linked to it as the document below analyzes.
The articulated trains have been in operation in cities such as Paris and Shanghai. New York will not hence be the trendsetter, but the system will greatly improve the transport system in the city. The subway system in New York has a history of approximately one hundred and ten years (Salazar 1). It has been indicated, however, the design of cars and trains in this subway system has undergone very little changes. They are still
