New York’s subway system is no stranger to design changes.
But this year’s redesign will change the layout of the system, according to a new report by architectural firm Architects & Engineers for America.
According to the report, the MTA is designing a new layout with a higher frequency of platforms, a shorter train platform and a more compact layout for stations.
“A subway is more than just a train platform.
It is also a space that connects people to work, play, socialize, and work in community,” the report states.
“It is also an environment that is more welcoming to people of all ages and abilities.
The new layout will also reduce the frequency of platform crossings and reduce the need for station-to-station transitions and station exits.”
While there is still no word on what will be added to the new layout, the MTA has already been updating stations with the new design.
MTA spokesman Tom Latham told the New York Daily News that the design will be released at the end of the month.
As of now, the new MTA subway design is set to go into effect on March 28, but this is not the first redesign that has happened in New York since 2012.
New York City has been redesigning the subway system since 2010, when the city first installed new signage for its subway stations, and has since gone through several other redesigns.
In 2018, the city also changed the layout for its buses, adding new subway stations and stations with more stops, platforms and stops, as well as a bus stop that now has two platforms and two exits.
