New Yorkers have much appreciated the ‘A’ through ‘D’ letter grading for all restaurants around town. From this, the NYC Council is proposing that out subway system be graded the same way – in the stations. Since the Dept of Health grades restaurants mainly on cleanliness, Queens councilman Peter Koo, who initiated the idea, says that the same should be done for our stations, and throwing vermin into the equation. But how is the MTA taking this? Not very well. According to Metro New York, at the City Council budget hearing on mass transit yesterday, the MTA said it would be considered, but eventually said no. MTA spokesman Kevin Ortiz stated that it’d be too costly nor would it be helpful to riders.
Your thoughts? Should our subway stations be graded like our restaurants, or just each 23 individual lines (including the Staten Island Rail) be graded this way? Tell us what you think by:
