also ROTF, LMFAO<quoted text>Take an earlier train, If you travel west from LI to NYC in the am. You know that you need to leave early to beat the traffic or you will be late. If you take a 7am train to the city and it gets you there late take the 645 train. As far as cost and such people destroy these brand new trains and that is what cost. Lawsuits from gap injuries to ripped clothing. Here is a good one the flood that halted the subway during that heavy rain. Some of cause was AMnew york papers stuck in all the subway drains from slobs throwing garbage on the tracks. Bottom line is if you look at the root of any of the issues brought up it comes down to the people that use the system. Some is the system, that the new president seems to be looking to address. Just remeber when you see someone putting there feet on the seats, ripping the seats throwing garbage on the floor We all pay for that.
There's only 4 trains a day where I live (2 in, 2 out). This, despite the fact that the population has mushroomed from a few thousand to a hundred thousand in about 15 years. So what train do you suggest I take? Is it so much to ask that the LIRR provide a minimum of service?
