How to ease transportation woes
Coordinating deliveries: It’s all about the logistics of coordinating deliveries with offices, companies and businesses so that the majority of the deliveries are not being made during peak daytime hours. This will make our streets more manageable and our businesses more efficient, and it will give more time back to the truck drivers who spend hours circling city streets only to end up double parking.
Flexibility on the train: If we are to get more office workers back into the office sooner, we need to offer greater flexibility on our railroads to the suburbs, where many New Yorkers moved during the pandemic.
