LIRR Meeting Equals More Of The Same

On the heels of the report coming out showing the MTA Long Island Rail Road had its worst month of on time performance in 22 years, the much maligned agency held a board meeting to discuss solutions. Unfortunately after hearing the suggestions put forth, it just sounded like more of the same.

Yes, the agency acknowledges the need for infrastructure upgrades such as signal & track work. However my biggest pet peeve is the whole call to action to improve communication with riders. LIRR riders have been hearing that same tired canned solution after every issue involving the agency.

While I acknowledge that they have improved in ways with communication, this is not what riders care about most, they just want reliable service without the daily barrage of mishaps. Every few years the fares get raised yet we get more inferior service with it which is a complete slap in the face.
