Beginning in 2011 and continuing today, the New York City Department of Transportation conducts an extensive and participatory public input process. This process involves holding community planning workshops and meeting frequently with community boards, elected officials, community organizations and other stakeholders to gather input. Additionally, DOT provides the opportunity for those who may not be able to attend a public meeting to give feedback through an interactive siting map where citizens can suggest future station locations throughout the City. This method of planning allows for a system truly designed for New Yorkers, to meet New Yorkers needs.
