Subway General Manager Program Coming Soon

Caught in the mess of what has been a really negative amount of press for the MTA was MTA CEO/Executive director announcing plans to have a general manager for each individual subway line. Pete Donohue had the report:

The MTA is gearing up for a major subway management shakeup to improve service on the debt-ridden, delay-plagued system, the Daily News has learned.

This fall, individual lines systemwide are expected to get their own chiefs with broad authority to run them like their own mini-railroads, officials said Tuesday.

I am not sure why media outlets are acting like this news is new. They announced plans to do this back in December. The initial pilot program was implemented on the 7 & L lines respectively. It was known that if the program went well, it would be implemented on the remaining lines.

I am not going to repeat my opinions on the plan as they can be seen by clicking the link in the above paragraph.
