Downtown’s future transportation hub is well in the works.
The Fulton Street Transit Center, scheduled to open in 2014, is already in operation: Sections of the A and C mezzanine levels have opened, in addition to the southbound platform of the R line’s Cortlandt Street station, according to a December 23 report in the New York Times.
