With a transit-worker strike looming, officials in New York are putting together contingency plans, including shuttle trains from 33rd St. to the World Trade Center, and a radical HOV-only plan in the Holland and Lincoln tunnels. If the strike goes off Friday morning, only vehicles containing four individuals will be allowed through the portals, which is the first we've heard of such a measure. Bay Area bridges require 3 people for use of the HOV lanes but four? It certainly illustrates how much New Yorkers rely on public transit, at the very least.
