NEW YORK — The New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority has issued a request for proposals to renovate four New York City Transit subway stations in Manhattan. The station overhauls are part of the agency’s subway station enhancement package planned for 33 stations across New York City.

The latest wave of renovations are planned for the 163rd Street, Cathedral Parkway, 86th Street, and 72nd Street stations located on the agency’s B and C lines in Manhattan. The firm which receives the final contract will be responsible for redesigning the stations from top to bottom.

Renovations include Wi-Fi, USB ports, better lighting, signage, improved cellular connectivity, new art work, and better security camera systems, among other enhancements.

MTA representatives say that in order to fast track the renovations, the stations will be temporarily closed, noting that contractors are encouraged to keep closures as short as possible. Contractors will have 14 months from when they are awarded a contract to complete all of the station work.
