I am tired of hearing the backlash of the NYC MTA service cuts. New York Citiers have been accustomed to the subways running every few minutes and having multiple subways and buses on similar routes. For those of us that live in the suburbs, we memorize our trains timetable, because our service runs on a schedule every 30 minutes. I don't think most New York Citiers will even realize if a few subways are cut, sure some trains will be more crowded, but if the MTA does it right, perhaps the off peak times will be where the cuts will come from. The transportation costs of traveling within the city limits are so small, that I don't think there is a basis for people to complain.
