Transit group comes up with plan to cut down traffic in the Hamptons
A new group says it has come up with a way to cut down on gridlock out in the Hamptons.
Five Town Rural Transit says it could cut down on traffic by taking over the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) on the East End. The plan would schedule one or two car trains making stops at every station every half hour, met by shuttle buses. In the summer months, there would also be water taxis.
LIRR officials say they have yet to see a proposal. In addition, for the plan to become a reality approvals are also needed from the county, state legislature and the governor.
