Governor Cuomo's Plan to Transform Penn Station into a World Class Transportation Hub

As part of Andrew Cuomo’s 2016 agenda, it was announced this morning that the Governor plans to transform the reviled Penn Station into a world class transportation hub.

The project, known as the Empire Station Complex, will feature significant passenger improvements, including first-class amenities, natural light, increased train capacity and decreased congestion, and improved signage to dramatically enhance the travel experience. The project – which is anticipated to cost $3 billion – will be expedited by a public-private partnership in order to break ground this year and complete substantial construction within the next three years.

Anything will be better than what we currently have, so this is a welcomed upgrade to one of the most unnecessarily complex transit hubs in the City.
