MTA Dicks Over Clinton Hill

g train flooded Most people write about this two days ago, but I was toiling away at work and didn't have time to get a post up.

The MTA, in its monthly meeting today, will present a "Doomsday Scenerio" budget and plan that calls for reduction in service on the G line by 50%!

I've never heard anything more ridiculous.  Most neighborhoods serviced by the G have seen population increases, and transit ridership is at an all-time high.

In difficult economic times, it's best practice to increase funding for public transit infrastructure, which bioth creates jobs and reduces reliance on cars.

And aside from that policy stuff, the G train has been awfully crowded lately as it is.
