Management of Subways to Be Split

Management of Subways to Be Split

 

Since the subways were unified into one system decades ago, New Yorkers have come to think of them as part of a single, vast, often unwieldy whole.

 

When the trains are late or trash piles up in a station, straphangers tend to grumble about a faceless “authority.” No one says: That guy who runs the No. 7 line really needs to get his act together.

 

But transit officials are determined to change that.

Supposedly the want to create a General Manager for each division. I thought it was like that already. I think it's a great idea.

A crew for each line? That sounds good, as long as there is a central control for all the lines. Maybe the grand transit council?

Aren't there line superintendents already?

 

Good question. If there are then they are possibly who Mr. Roberts is talking about. You can't take what's in the papers word for word, and people do mis-speak at times. At least he does understand it's the layers of bureaucracy, that keeps things from getting done. He wants to change that. I'm all for it.

The RTO Structure is every Line has a Line Supt which has a Dep Supt for each tour on that line. Then you have a Gen Supt followed by the Assistant Chief for the Div. Then a Chief of RTO. So will just use the L Line as an Example. lets take that stalled L Train in the river tube. The Crew will write a report to the L Line PM Dep Supt. Then he fowards the Information to the Line Supt who will decided what punishment he will recommend downtown to the office of Labor relations. The L Line Supt must also notify the District Gen Supt who controls the A/C/J/M//L/Z Lines. Then he notifies the Head of B Div. Then the Chief get all the information.

The New way a GM decides everything and doesn't have to get appoval from anyone. Thats the way I understand it.
