I've made a facebook group about the R32's.

Speaking of facebook, there is a new facebook group created by a wanna-be community organizer from my college with a group simply titled "Boycott the MTA" which advocates for a date or multiple dates of boycott of NYCT subways, buses, and SIR. The BS being posted by some of these people is borderline amusing since a few of these idiots really think they're going to get an entire city to boycott with them. :) I'm not saying anyone should start a flame-war on there, but in case you want to take peak...

They're nuts... how are they going to get around if they are boycotting the TA? Carpool? Bike? Walk? Commuter rail? PATH? Forget it, I'll just stick with the subway.

If they use commuter rail as an alternative (which wouldn't surprise me since they may not think of them as "(MTA)"), that would really be stupid since they would actually pay more on what is just another constituent agency of the (MTA).

However, in the minds of many, (MTA) = the subway.

Also, people can boycott the (MTA) as much as they want (no matter how futile it may be), but they won't have a major impact at all with the (MTA) not getting their $2 fares.

 

Exactly. The (MTA) will not feel the loss of a few Metrocards not being swiped one day compared with the thousands that will swipe anyway since they don't have any choice and aren't going to skip out on work over it. What also didn't make sense was one Staten Island on their mentioning the one train (SIRT) that is horrible. If my profile pic wasn't me standing on an R-17, which may make them think I'm an (MTA) plant, I would respond to tell him the fact of how little revenue SIRT brings in from the fare which is only paid at St. George (and Ballpark). Many ride it w/o paying a thing at intermediate stations, so a boycott of that system is the biggest joke.
