LaGuardia continues to build and expand, helping to enhance the passenger experience as they modernize one of the key points of entry to the great New York area.
This week, Kathy Hochul announced that the plan to build an AirTrain to LaGuardia Airport is over. This is announced after the cost of the project rose to $2.4 billion, which is 5 times what the original estimate was.
According to 1010 Wins’ Article Plan to build Airtrain to LaGuardia officially over: Hochul, This project started in 2015, when former governor Andrew Cuomo agreed to build the Airtrain. The original cost was estimated at $450 million, but after his resignation, as well as opposition from officials and the community, it was put on hold.
After review from newly elected governor Nancy Hochul, along with the panel of transportation experts, they decided on Monday that increasing bus transportation and adding a shuttle was the best option. Some experts suggested expanding the subway from Midtown to LaGuardia, but engineers were unable to find a way to build a subway extension that was possible.
Although this is disappointing to some, LaGuardia continues to build and expand, helping to enhance the passenger experience as they modernize one of the key points of entry to the great New York area.
