What if, instead of having separate subway cars making up a train, New York City had articulated subways with no doors between the cars? Such trains would look a lot like longer versions of the MTA's buses, with accordion portions between sections. An MTA report recommends articulated subways as one possibility for the subway of the future, since it could allow for easier passenger movement and reduce crowding. Berlin, Paris, and Toronto are among the cities that already use articulated subways. [NYP; previously]
