MTA spent $2.5M on new clerk uniforms

As the MTA geared up to take straphangers to the cleaners, it spent about $2.5 million dressing up token booth clerks with spiffy new uniforms.

 

Over the past several months, 3,500 workers in the subway stations department have been trading in their traditional work outfits - blue shirts, blue pants - for a more formal look: white shirts and gray trousers, or skirts for the ladies working behind the glass.

 

The men get gray and black ties; female workers ascots. The new wardrobe also includes a burgundy vest, burgundy sweater and burgundy coat.

Aw man, the MTA OD'ed. I think they got a little wasteful with this. But oh well, its already done.

 

So maybe the farehike is to get more money to get new uniforms for everyone else?

I saw nothing wrong with the current uniforms. This was a waste in my opinion. The money could have gone to something else more useful.

What a waste. The current uniforms are more than adequate. If they're going to raise the fare, at least they ought to put the funds towards a more useful improvement.

Seems like a nice change I suppose. I don't have a problem with it really, but the money could very well have been spent on other things.
