Re: Should the city take back its buses and subways?

If there is not a permanent but subject to COLA funding mechanism, the economics are hopeless. As to whether a city or a state entity is more or less likely to be full of incompetent personnel and corrupt behavior, that is a toss up.

I believe MTA was created among other reasons was to isolate the mayor from the raise the fare, lose the next election problem. As well something had to be done to keep LIR running.

The issues of which transport modes get favored will always be a tug of war; we should be pleased there so many people who want to be in NYC. As a counter example, when I was in South Bend IN a decade ago there were NO traffic jams because the city has insufficient employment.
