Tom Wood: A New York City mayor’s dream for a new era of transit
Tom Wood, a New York city mayor, said his plan for the New York subway, the subway that he calls the “ultimate subway” would have opened in 2023.
Wood, the son of former New York mayor Ed Koch, said he wants the subway to be a “transit city.”
He said the subway is not just a way for New Yorkers to get from one place to another, but also a way to move people to places where there are no other options.
Wood said his goal is to have the subway open in 2035.
The MTA, which has been building subway stations in the city, said the 2023 timeline would not happen.
The subway is scheduled to open in 2021.
