Someone actually gets it...

New York City, NY - The NYMTA Commissioner, Barry Feinstein, sees the light regarding over designed transit projects as described in the NY Post.

Feinstein complains that the latest plan for the Fulton Street transit hub puts "fancy" form over substance. This viewpoint appears based on the fact that the MTA had to eliminate a transfer tunnel which would be beneficial for the riders of the system. The elimination of the tunnel was done to reduce costs on the already over budget project.

It's funny how something that will actually benefit the ridership gets eliminated while millions continue to be wasted in unneeded frills for the transfer station.

Barry Feinstein is awarded the first Laurel for understanding that you need to place service first and frills second.
