Love it or hate it, if you've got something to say on Forest City Ratner's plan to control traffic around Atlantic Yards once the Barclays Center opens in the fall, you've got until tomorrow to have your say.

The deadline for submitting comments is Tuesday, July 3 at 6 p.m.

The main gist of the plan is that the developer and the MTA will encourage people to take the train instead of driving by adding extra trains and through public education about the joys of public transit.

But critics say the plan's of parking surcharges and residential parking permits mean there's no "real disincentives" to convince people to leave their cars at home.

You can read the full Barclays Traffic Management Plan and a Q & A on it and send your comments to AtlanticYards@esd.ny.gov by 6 p.m. on Tuesday, July 3.
