Public transit is getting up and running again in New York City. My commute to work on Thursday and Friday were fun. I live in the Bronx and work in Brooklyn. It took me two hours to get into the office those days and involved two subway lines and the hellish B62 bus from Queensboro to Williamsburg. Not that bad overall. I came across this article on Transportation Nation about how highways and roads get federal rebuilding funds and public transit does not. It’s just very interesting because roads and highways are much cheaper to fix than subways and light rail systems. Then again, federal funding is always a strange beast to make sense of.
