The Spring and Summer of 2017 has brought a crisis to the working people
of the City of New York with the MTA. Long festering problems seemed to
have bubbled up into a frothy cauldron of troubles leaving New Yorkers
contemplating the viability of a living in this city.

Commuting, family trips to the Zoo and the Beach, doctors appointments,
every routine trip has become cause for worry. Venturing into our mass
transit system has become arduous and dangerous. A typical trip involves
confronting menacing, endless pan handling, religious sermons,
confrontations with the mentally ill and otherwise dangerous
individuals, urine human feces in stairwells and elevators, and shanty
town encampments at subways stations all along the system.

Added to this, the system itself is in a state of total dysfunction.

Rush Hour has been effectively cancelled by the MTA several times in May
and June to the cost of billions of dollars of business losses and
wages. Twice, the MTA has reported that power outages in Brooklyn's
Dekalb Avenue hub had forced the shutdown for over 45 minutes the entire
Atlantic Avenue - Dekalb Avenue complex during apex of the morning rush
hour. Both on May 7th and May 9th, 2017 the MTA reported outages by
ConEd. ConEd in turn reports that there was no outage on Sunday, just a
voltage dip and that on Tuesday they can't find any such equipment
failure. This is not how an enterprise ready system should function.

These mystery outages shut down rush hour traffic for the
B,D,N,Q,R,2,3,4, and 5 trains, covering the bulk of the Borough, and
affecting broadly traffic all the way to the Bronx. And yet power was up
and everything lit up all about Downtown Brooklyn leaving angry
commuters cynical about the durability of the system and the competency
of the upper management. How is it possible that a system that has
successfully run for well over one hundred years, that carried in the
40's and 50's nearly twice the traffic that it does now, that
successfully negotiated two world wars, the great depression, the fiscal
crisis and near bankruptcy of the 1970's, the abuse and neglect of the
1980's, 9-11, and yet seems to be succumbing to signal failures and
minor power outages late into the second decade of the 21st century?

How is it possible that after recently pouring billions of dollars into
track work and platform improvements, to the tune of over 40 billion
dollars of MTA capital debt, that the system is now incapable of its
primary function which is to move trains and people in a clean, and safe
manner.

Commuters cynicism has been cruelly confirmed with a head-on derailment
of the A train in July, the result of sloppy maintenance secondary to
track work. The resulting rush hour derailment killed service uptown and
in the Bronx, stranding everything above 59th street, including Harlem,
Washington Heights, Ingelwood, and the Bronx, while disrupting service
all along the A,C,D and B trains.
