    On the long list of awful public authorities, the MTA ranks near or at the top.

    OT1H, the system is quiet good. OTOH, as a governing body they are awful.

    seriously though, the mta system sucks compared to any modern subway system. korea and japan's subway systems blow ny's out of the water.

    Yeah that's what I'm saying.

    I should've been a MTA worker. Retire "disabled" at 40 with a six-figure pension.

    That Metro North and the LIRR have conductors rather than turnstiles at each end has got to be one of the biggest sinks of money possible.

    Given the way the platforms are set up at 99% of the stations, I don't see how that could ever work.
