Links roundup—MTA edition

October 10, 2011
  • Today was the first “low ridership” day at the MTA, meaning that there were a few less trains running. By cutting service on holidays when fares are usually down, the authority hopes to save about $200,000 per year. [Gothamist]
  • The MTA also has a new 511 number for riders to get information about schedules, make complaints, etc. [Gothamist]
  • Upper East Side residents are upset about the MTA’s plans to renovate the 68th Street station and make it handicapped accessible. [NY Post]
  • Senator Charles Schumer wants a passengers’ bill of rights for the LIRR. Says one MTA employee: “You can introduce any ‘Bill of Rights’ you want, but if you don’t have hourly employees on, ready to help, what good is a bill of rights?” [Gothamist]
  • Is Wall Street taking advantage of the MTA? [2nd Ave. Sagas]
  • Finally, everything you ever wanted to know about subway conductors. [Gothamist]
