Considering the way that every capital improvement moves at a snail’s pace, ANY step ahead is nice to see. Today I was at Bleecker St./B’way-Lafayette and I noticed that the new Houston St. entrance to the northbound #6 is finally open, even though the transfer between the northbound #6 and the IND platforms is not yet open.

Ben- most of the posts here focus on the underground aspects of NYC Transit with the occasional bus headline, which is great. But, there’s a new show in town with Citi Bikes coming this July, which could be a game changer for transportation.

Any chance you have an inside line on the expectations for this program or simply a perspective to share?
