merc16: I commute on Metro North every day and they are making a great case for me moving back into New York City. Why in the hell am I paying $330 a month to commute on a train system that is always late and always having power issues? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH!!!
Baloo Uriza: passengers on the transit system are forced to pay their own way entirely
Clemkadidlefark: Metro Rail? What's that?/says from wyoming

merc16: Gulper Eel: The MTA right now has a $1.9 billion surplus, btw.They should seriously be using those funds to get the New Haven line up to snuff (and to finish the 2nd Ave subway line). I live in Connecticut and commute in daily and that line is in dire need of some MTA love. It'd be nice for one thing if the morning trains actually had enough farking cars so that people didn't have to stand the whole 1+ hour ride into the city. It'd also be nice if they actually arrived and departed on time in the mornings. I usually don't have a problem with the trains at night but the morning commute is always a hot mess.
lilplatinum: Why should we waste our money in people who send their property tax dollars to another state? Plenty of subway lines that could use some improvement before worrying about the B&T crowd.
