  1. Well they rushed the company to get it to them they probably knew it it was a problem this is why they didn't want to give New York City these train cars yet now New York City is stuck with the defect


  2. America is so far behind in their Transit service compared to the rest of the world the transit service especially in New York City is the worst in the world as far as the cars and the tracks. It's not like Japan


  3. Ride a Japanese or chineses company to take care of it. They will fix all systems fast and with no much cost. There is something wrong behind the scenes


  4. MTA wants $$$$$$ but we don’t see any improvements. Where are the police officers on Stations? There is no supervisor and cars are disgusting. They have lazy people working in the system. Worst service always


  5. May I remind you uneducated passengers this is not the MTAs fault at all. Bombaridier is at fault for making horrid subway cars
