They're good to have since they are informative, but I wonder if people pay attention to it during GO's.

I guess nobody reads the GO posters, because as I was reading one at Pacific St, somebody came up to me and asked if this was the Manhattan-bound platform. I guess they assume only the well-versed read them? And that also shows that nobody reads the signs, either!

It's one thing if the MTA only puts G.O's in places the casual rider doesn't look at, such as its website and in the GO box. It's another if the MTA makes CLEAR, loud announcements about them and the riders are so oblivious as not to listen at all.

 

I understand people tune out the security announcements, but if there are announcements affecting your trip, listen! It's obvious which are security and which aren't, I think all the security ones start with "This is an important message from the New York City Police Department". There's only so much the MTA can do.
