My favorite cuts are when the Manhattan bound D runs on the N line and the Manhattan bound N runs on the D line. Always gives me a chuckle seeing the two signs next to each other.

Is it time to allow competition on the rails? It seems a little bit unfair that all that nepotism and corruption should be concentrated into just one organization.

WTF? There is no trains running ANYWHERE near me this weekend!! You SUCK MTA. The free shuttle buses are a joke they just drive right by without stopping. I wish you would go on strike so the governor could fire all of you bums!!!
Thanks Mayor Mike for making it impossible to own a car here and be hostage to these bozos!

NYC has the best mass transit in the world. I don't like the the weekend disruptions either, but when you know them in advance and take your time it is not the end of the world.

Not owning a car is the best thing about living here.
