Would overnight track work be better than weekends?

What do you think of the MTA plan to shut entire subway lines (overnight) during the week to complete track repairs instead of weekends?  Post your comments (below) and they could appear on Eyewitness News First at 4 p.m.




Yeah I totally agree with Miram, train workers are working overnight to make the society convenient in their travel destination. A big thanks to MTA workers!


How much of an inconvenience would shutting down whole lines be for the people who work night shifts? I think they should continue track work the way the MTA has been doing so, albeit repairs being done a little at a time. That way, service isn't completely interrupted.

This isn't really a shock. The broken subway system already shuts down or reroutes subway lines every night and over the weekends as it is. The service simply never improves. This will affect mainly two factions of people: those who work overnight (cleaning crews, security guards, etc.), and those to partake and make their living in the nightlife industry. It seems the MTA only caters to the 9 to 5'ers.

The MTA can do whatever they want under two conditions: $1.50 one way fare, and do not forget about the Bronx!


I think it is great; I hate taking the shuttle buses when I have to take the subway for a 9 am class on a Saturday. Don't forget, these train workers will be sacrificing their own sleep just to keep our trains running. Thank you MTA workers.
