Is anyone else having a real bitch of a time with the turnstiles the last few days? I feel like a complete moron.
It all culminated with today when I swiped so much that I lost my fare.
I’m hoping that the guy in charge of cleaning the MetroCard slots is on vacation or something. At my [...]
It’s a good thing I snagged a seat today, or it would have been a pretty crappy way to start my morning.
At 28th Street, my train was stuck in the station because of a door problem. Perhaps some of the motormen that read this blog can chime in on what can cause this.
Clearly it was [...]

It took me nearly 15 minutes to get a new Metrocard today. What a freaking cluster f*ck.
I happen to be at a station that is under construction, so it only has two machines at this entrance. Of course, there’s always a line because there’s only the two machines.

Senator Chuck Schumer wants the federal government to write a check for a few billion dollars to bail out the MTA.
Just think, this could have been done back when Congestion Pricing was all the rage. [...]
Was anyone delayed by the wall collapse on Lexington in the 30’s today?
Apparently, there was a 10 foot wall that collapsed at a construction site. Emergency officials evacuated a neighboring building as a precaution because they feared that the ground movement might make the foundation of that building unstable. It wasn’t really that bad though.
So like I said, the rain is bad news.
My ride home was all f-ed up. I got onto the platform only to see 10,000 other people already waiting for the train delayed due to rain.
By pure miracle, I made it onto the first train that finally came 15 minutes later. People were getting so pissed [...]
For that price, it had better come with at least two drinks.
The latest news is the very real possibility of subway fares going over $100 for monthly cards. I call bullsh*t there not because of the price necessarily, but what we get.
I love the lead from the Daily News:
Brace yourself for the C-note MetroCard.
It is [...]
