‘The Next Stop Is…’ on subway cell service

by Benjamin Kabak

NextStopis With an extra week in between episodes this time around thanks to some scheduling conflicts on my part, Second Ave’ Sagas’ podcast “The Next Stop Is…” returns with an all-new session for your enjoyment this week. On episode five of the series, Eric Brasure and I tackle a variety of subjects. We start with a discussion on the troubles plaguing the parking lots at Yankee Stadium, hit upon the MTA’s new program to improve passenger flow in stations, and end with a diatribe on the New Yorkers who have been decrying plans to expand subway cell and wi-fi service.

This week’s recording runs approximately 25 minutes, long enough for your subway commute, and I’m posting it now to give you a chance to grab the link for your morning ride if you check the site early enough. You can grab the podcast right here on iTunes or pull the raw MP3 file. If you enjoy what you hear, subscribe to updates on iTunes as well.

We’ll be back with a new episode in two weeks, and we’d love to take more reader questions. So if you have a topic you’d like me to cover, leave a comment or drop me a note.

Is there anywhere I can find text transcripts of these? I’m interested, but I’d much rather read than listen.

Do you know what tunnel is going for rehab/fix and fortify?

This is an elaboration on something I posted through the contact page about the idea of crowdsourcing a subway improvement such as the 41st & 10th Ave station on the 7 Line Extension. That question was designed to simply discover if the idea had even been contemplated, however as most current crowdsourcing setups seem to work on the idea of offering geegaws to investors and after free train rides cannot see what else could be offered so that might be worth exploring.

As a secondary question, have there been any proposals to restore the Franklin Ave shuttle to a two track line?
