New York City Subway expansion plans, 1968
The MTA was created in the midst of a mass transit crisis: the city couldn't raise fares without a political shitstorm, the privately-owned commuter trains were bankrupt, and the Bridge and Tunnel Authority was flush with cash. The MTA's plan, therefore, was simple: fix the subways, expand them where necessary to fix overcrowding, and use bridge and tunnel money to keep the subways running. This was released as the Program for Action of 1968.
With this map, I've used the MTA's modern color scheme, for clarity's sake, but everything else, including the line naming scheme, is period-correct.
