Thomas from Bronx says:
The MTA use private contractors to perform most of the work in the subways. When they are employed to do the work, entire subway lines are affected. If you notice, this has been going on for 15 years or better.NYC patrons are considered second class citizen when it comes to these outside private contractors.Here is a thought, What good is having a train that goes 55mph when it goes only 20 mph on a daily basis. All of the technology goes to waste because these outside private contractors prolong the work so that they can continue getting tax payer from the MTA and at the same time screw the patrons of NYC. Oh yeah, their argument is we are making the system better. But when will they finish?
