Many say New York has one of the greatest public transportation systems in the world, but most of these people are tourists who pop into town and marvel over the fact that they don’t need an SUV to get from point A to point B. They’re not born-and-raised New Yorkers who typically work late and rise early — and need the train more than food, water, sleep, and any other basic human comfort. That said, the MTA must be run by tourists — or at least people with a lot of time on their hands. How else to explain such an abysmal weekend schedule?
