MTA Discriminates Against Dimes

Posted on September 28th, 2007 by The SUBWAYblogger in This just in

What an outrage. Where’s Al Sharpton when you need him. Oh yeah…he’s busy trying to get himself on TV with the Jena 6. Anyway, we’ve recently learned that the MTA hates dimes.
Yup…you heard it right here. The MTA Metrocard machines do not take dimes. They can handle dimes, quarters, and those [...]

Ok, I just have to get this off my chest. The New York Post has these f*cking stupid ads up on the subway for “Page Six.” They are taking their already lame section and turning it into a Sunday magazine.
“It’s Free in the Sunday New York Post.” Which means it’s not [...]

Just further proof that black guys can make even the whitest songs sound better.
(I know this isn’t the NYC Subway, but it was too good not to post!)

The MTA released a proposal today to increase fares on the Long Island Rail Road and Metro-North by 6.5%, and 25 cents for the subway.
Part of the proposal calls for a peak and off peak system to be implemented for MetroCard users.   Peak rides would cost $2.25.  Off peak rides would only cost $1.50.  [...]

There, in one sentence, I summed up what took the MTA 88 pages to explain.
At the six most flood-prone [...]

That sounds strange doesn’t it:  “Stations getting wired for wireless.”
Anyway, after two long years of debate and negotiation, it seems that the MTA is finally moving forward with wiring stations for wireless access. 
Currently, cellphone reception is extreemly limited in the subway because your essentially burried under 50 of dirt and concrete…not so good for wireless [...]

Really?  I mean REALLY?  With all the problems this year associated with track worker safety, does this really seem safe?  You tell me.Granted, this tape was shot in January 2007, but still.  I bet it still happens today.
Track workers squeeze into safety space to avoid approaching train.

Well it’s official now. If you are a subway track worker, it’s time to take out a little extra life insurance. By the look of things, it is a complete miracle every time you guys make it out of there alive.
You’ve basically got 4 different fault points at any given time where you [...]
