I live half the year in Woodlawn, and half the year in Rockaway. These are two of the finest neighborhoods in New York City.
The MTA does not serve the needs of the people of New York properly. The current boss of the MTA is a jerk. He wants to increase the fares and decrease rides on the trains. I ride NYC trains, and buses all over New York. It is the best transportation system in the world, but needs new leadership.
First and foremost, the trains should run express from Rockaway to Broadway-Nassau every 15 minutes. This would allow all residents in Rockaway more time and allow them to be more comfortable going to and coming from work. I have announced publicly to be MTA Chairman on Channel 12 and would love the support of the Rockaway Community in the endeavor. I love Rockaway and want to make it a better place. It would cut travel time by 20 minutes!
