Re: The MTA's Misplaced Priorities

I read the link you cited. The employee did what he was required to do, push a button to get assistance. The victim wanted more, but he did all that was required and help arrived. The hypothetical situation I stated was a little different. I stated if the Help Point was broken, and if there were no station attendant, help woud have never arrived. So a judge could make a big award if there was a lawsuit. The situations were not comparable.

Regarding buses, the MTA has an obligation to serve all neighborhoods, not leave some without transit access. If we were willing to accept that, we might as well let private companies run the bus system.

There is no logical rationale to provide service every 5 minutes on a north/south route to Plumb Beach and 20 minute or no service on an east-west route when both routes will only carry a half dozen passengers. That is what the B44 SBS proposes. If you need to go east west, a north/south route does you no good.
