I was handed a new (the Second Annual) Rider Report Card this morning as I headed down to the subway.  I can’t believe it has already been a year since I filled out one of these things.
I especially enjoy the little opening letter inside the card.  Here’s a few highlights.
“We’ve worked diligently over the past [...]

Turns out it’s not just the homeless guys that pick up the tossed Metrocards to try and to use the leftover values.
The Post reports that Georgette DiFini, an F line resident of Brooklyn, regularly picks up discarded Metrocards.  She claims that roughly 40% of all tossed cards have at least some money left on them.  [...]

MTA’s officials gave the press tours of the new South Ferry station that is expected to open next month.
Many reporters made comments about how clean it was, as it it were a hospital wing.  The fancy new station cost about $500 million to build directly under the current South Ferry station.
What does this mean for [...]

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:

Deal Drugs on the Subway?

Or at least discuss strategies.  Yikes.
There’s two fairly large, old men that ride the subway every morning.  I see them at least a couple times a month together.  They’re already on the train when I get on, so they must live further uptown.
They have really distinct old-man gravely voices, and are quite round in the [...]

So a fat woman and a gay guy walk into a bar.  (Just kidding)
Instead, a skinny gay guy sits down next to a biiiiiiig hunk of woman on the subway.  She’s easily a seat-and-a-halfer.  Her thighs are just spilling over into the seat next to her.
She was all the way at the end of the [...]
