    MTA workers that work in the booth have a simple job but take it for granted, they treat their customers poorly and they're extremely rude. Simply asking for help means getting screamed at, and all they do is just sit there, but not all, but many just have this behavior that they don't want to be bothered at all.I am discouraged to ask for assistance by MTA workers that work in the booth. They're supposed to serve the public, yet they lack proper etiquette and good customer service. Typical of the public sector.

  11. David W says

    The subway system of Toronto has less confusing names for stations, making it easier to distinguish among stations on the same street e.g. among those located on- Dundas St.: Dundas, St. Patrick and Dundas West- Eglinton: Kennedy (Eglinton East), Eglinton and Eglinton West- Sheppard: Sheppard West (formerly Downsview), Sheppard-Yonge

    Subway eat fresh

  13. Al A says

    I know where I am going and know all the tricks of the trade. This is a video more geared towards visitors. If you've "mastered" NYC mass transit, you can probably master any other transit all over the world even if you do not know the language. Use a little common sense. Simple…
