Truthfully, I don't want anything from any outside company. I already have holes drilled in my head with the countless ads.

I would like to see more newstands and small sandwich shops in the major or minor stations i know for a fact some people would like a nice hot cup of coffee or a sandwich while waiting for a train in the cold winter months,now if only the MTA would stop being greedy with rent money and maybe some small newstands can afford to rent a spot again.

1. Newspaper circulation - I don't use newsstands in the subway but they don't seem to hold newspapers...maybe the (MTA) can strike a deal with a real newspaper agency (i.e. Financial Times, Wall St. journal, NYT, etc.) and circulate these newspapers at newsstands for people willing to buy. It would be a nice change for some, than amNY and the Metro.

 

2. The subway lacks cleanliness. Various neighborhoods can undergo a Rent-A-Station program where they help clean up the stations that are part of their neighborhood.

 

That's all I can think of right now, I'll keep posting more ideas when I come up with them.

I just want (A) clean <R>estroom at every station

 

Yup! Most people need to stop urinating in station platforms.. I wonder if a Restroom should be added in train cars..

Ironically the two are related. A key argument for not selling papers in subway stations is that they have a way of winding up on the floor of the cars, or on the tracks themselves, which can create a fire hazard.

 

What I'd like to see is more "bodega" style delis in the system, like the one at 77th st S/B (6). Nice to be able to get a snack and a soda while standing on a subway platform. A hot dog/pretzel (aka park vendor) variety of these stores would be good as well.

I wouldn't mind seeing vending machines return to the platforms. We purchased small snacks such as Chiclets Gum, Zagnut Bars and Planters Peanut Bars from these.

 

Nedicks also operated stands in major stations like Roosevelt Avenue. 70(EE) 70(GG) 70(E) 70(F) 70(7). Hot dogs and an orange drink before catching your train.

Would be expensive to maintain all of them. But if the station is a busy one or an express stop, I don't see why not. For the el stations, that's going to be a challenge. It would work only on the underground stops.
