Join transit blogger Ben Kabak of Second Ave. Sagas in this continuing series of compelling one-on-one interviews. On Tuesday, he will speak with Larry Gould of the Operations Planning division of MTA New York City Transit about the FASTRACK maintenance program. They will discuss the complexities involved in repairing and maintaining a transit system that operates 24/7. While the service suspensions for FASTRACK are brief, the planning process is extensive! As head of the program, Gould helps determine what parts of the subway system will be shut down, and when. His team re-routes service, coordinates customer communications and oversees the long-term — and moment-by-moment — planning that a successful FASTRACK program requires.
