    And every year the trains are more crowded, and they are slower, and the prices increase. How can we fight back?

    I don’t know how to fight back, but you should take some comfort in the fact that the trains are in much better shape, both mechanically and with less graffiti than they were in the 70s and 80s!

    As a twice-a-day (at least) subway commuter the thing that makes me craziest is the ever-more-frequent stops between stations.

    On the A and C heading uptown to 59th, there’s invariably a wait underground after 50th. “Signal trouble” causing waits has become more frequent. My mental health, fragile at best, is seriously tested by these waits in tunnels, not to mention the frustration of delay itself.

    Why has “train traffic,” the frequent excuse for these things, suddenly become such an everyday issue?
