Today is a Gridlock Alert Day. 😦 What does that have to do with the subway? Everything.
For example, all over radio and television, reporters are saying, “You’re better off taking mass transit today.” In other words, run for the subways. Unfortunately, in the case of a Gridlock Alert Day, busses don’t count as mass transit. Technically they are mass transit, but you are not going to get anywhere quick on a bus today. You are going to be stuck in traffic just like people in cars.
That leaves the subways and trains. Add in the fact that today’s winds have caused hours of delays at the airports and you’ve got a sh*t storm cocktail.
If you can leave your office 20 minutes early, today is the day to do it.
Here are this year’s Gridlock Alert Days:
