Description:

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (Port Authority) proposes to construct an elevated automated people mover (APM) that would provide direct access between LaGuardia Airport (LGA) and two existing transit stations at Mets-Willets Point. The Port Authority’s preferred alternative would include two on-airport stations with a terminus station at Willets Point providing connections to the Mets-Willets Point stations of the Long Island Rail Road and the New York City Transit No. 7 subway line. The purpose of the Port Authority’s proposed project is to provide air passengers and employees with a time-certain option for access to LGA and permit the Port Authority to provide adequate employee parking for the geographically constrained airport.
