Well, I guess that’s at least half way cool.  It seems that the up escalator at the 59th Street/Columbus Circle station has been restored.  After what’s been about 4 months or more (?), that thing is finally getting back up and running.
Unfortunately, I can’t get on the MTA’s case for this because it is not [...]

I’m in an R train at city hall.  We’re being held here because of a track fire south of  Rector St.  They said FDNY is on scene.
They’re telling us to get off and go uptown to canal.  All downtown traffic on the Broadway line is going over the bridge.
Side note, apparently NJT and LIRR are [...]

Apparently there is a strange odor at the 53rd and 7th station that has caused it to be evacuated.

Anyway, this morning it was raining pretty hard as we all know.  On my train, there was an open window that obviously had water leak down it and formed a [...]

Just when you thought congestion pricing was dead, a weak heartbeat is heard.  In light of the abolutely astonishing deficit facing the MTA next year, the state is starting to get desperate in it’s search for funds.  Let’s back up and review.
The current state of the subway: sh*thole.
Oh, and that’s the official “term” now being [...]

Holy crap!  Was the MTA listening to us?
Remember back in June when we were talking about how cool it would be to have train cars without seats (aka standing room only)?  Yeah, guess what?
