“Transport, more than anything, changes a place” – John Betjeman

ReThink Studio is a New York City-based urban transportation consulting firm with a reputation for developing holistic solutions for both small and large-scale transportation problems. Recent work includes ReThinkNYC, an innovative plan to create a “car-optional” region by strengthening and expanding passenger rail in and around New York City.

Through the implementation of several interconnected proposals, the ReThinkNYC plan will improve efficiency, mobility, and capacity throughout New York City and the Northeast Corridor. A few major components of the plan include: regional rail unification, expanding LaGuardia Airport, redesigning parts of the NYC subway, and transforming an underutilized section of Queens into an international destination.
