Urban Solutions to Reducing Carbon Emissions through Solid Waste Disposal
The Station Alliance is a nonprofit, privately funded organization established to improve the environment of New York City’s subway stations. The Station Alliance requested a Capstone team to identify ways to upgrade the condition of the stations and develop strategies to provide long-term funding for those changes through a variety of sources: local partnerships, retail operations, sponsorships, donations, and improved technology. The team conducted research on current practices in subway stations nationally and internationally, as well as projections based on new, innovative ideas. The Capstone team developed a plan that provides recommendations for generating new services and amenities in stations, as well as funds to improve station conditions system-wide.
