First it was Amtrak that was unable to restore service to Penn Station. Then last week the entire subway system was crippled during Friday's morning commute by an electrical problem.
What is going on with mass transit? It is time for additional federal money to be allocated to this region so that Penn Station and the MTA can upgrade their systems.
These delays over the last two weeks are not acceptable to the riding public, nor should they be acceptable to the MTA and Amtrak or our elected officials.
