Dreaming of Subways ...Sigh

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

We spent the past week in NYC gallivanting around on the subway system, gleefully reaching each destination in a timely manner and with minimal walking distance. Yes, we do ride the Red Line occasionally, however we would ride the Metro subway more often if it provided better access to all parts of the city.

We recently covereda citizens' initiative to further develop the LA subway system (Get LA Moving), but the ongoing political banter of city officials suggests that such dreams will never come to fruition. Until then we will waste hours of our lives sitting on the jam-packed, gridlocked Rapid bus.
