What could the MTA do next?

Since the MTA does not want to raise fares this year,what could they do to address their new $400 million dollar gap?

 

What are some good and bad ideas they might consider?

I think the only thing left to do is cut ALL the trains and buses. Once they do that a significant portion of the (MTA) workforce (100%) would become redundant, and could be eliminated either through attrition, mass layoffs, or firing squads. The savings would be tremendous.

One thing they might do is bring back the possibility of increasing late night (1:30 or 2:00am to 5:00 or 5:30am) service from twenty minutes to thirty minutes.

 

Another potential is to eliminate the (5) on weekends, leaving it a Dyre Avenue Shuttle.

 

I think these were a couple of proposals from last year before the bailout came through.

IMO the MTA is making the wrong kinds of cuts. They could have easily saved the (W) during rush hours and make every other (M2) train operate to Brooklyn if needed only because the (R) needs all the help it can get. Extra trains during the rush hour won't really amend the situation because there will still be fewer trains (in the case of the (R) alone during rush hours) than the combined total of (M) and (R) trains. Expect trains to be more crowded.

Here are some suggestions.

 

1) Eliminate all drivers and have all buses operated by Tyco R/C controller

2)All subway trains run with the interior lights off

3)All train signals are hand drawn on cardboard

4)Hybrid buses only travel at 20 MPH to solely run electric only

5)cut back on critical construction material such as steel,brick,cement and replace it with Legos,Popsicle sticks and cardboards

 

6) cut back on washing buses and scrub them down with water and palmolive.-_-

Decrease the salaries of the administrators of the MTA get rid of their housing alllowance and the MTA should start selling some of thier real estate holdings.

Agreed!!! :cough-Madison-Avenue-cough-Broadway-cough-Livingston-cough:

The (MTA) already cut 15% of administrative payroll since Jay Walder became president so that's a step in the right direction. The next step would be to streamline operations wherever possible. This would mean going through with (MTA) Regional Bus to the fullest, combine NYCT, LIB and (MTA) Bus completely which would help streamline routes (i.e. B2/B100/B31, Q12/N20/N21, QM3/X51, etc.), streamline the bus fleet, and do more to cut back the (MTA)'s operating cost.

Once all of those changes implemented, the (MTA) could be run by part-time cashiers from Toys "R" Us.

 

Paterson's successor would be blinder than he is to pass you up as the next (MTA) chair.

Pay a giant ex-convict stands near the entrance with a sign around his neck that says, "$3.25, lube optional.". You pay him $3.25 and he has his way with you before you can enter the system. If you don't pay the $3.25 he has the right to inflict pain on the "fare beater" depending on if you got a pretty mouth or not.

The (MTA) should hit it and then proceed to quit it. :cool:

Well...

1.give everyone making over 200K per year a 30% pay cut.

1a.give everyone making over 100K per year a 20% pay cut.

 

2.Don't cut Station Agents.

 

3.Make some HELPFUL service cuts (won't go into them here).

 

4.Eliminate C/Rs on midday routes. At relay terminals, add platform conductors. This would require mirrors/CCTVs at the 10-car marker.
