As a project manager in a completely unrelated field Ive thought about this a lot, I can have 1000000 people to do Y tasks, but if only 10 people can do X task and that has to happen before that other team can start it doesnt matter. Having 300 people at a job site doesnt speed anything up if only a hand full can do part 1.

If anything I wish we could think outside the box about maximizing repair times, shutting down entire lines and having the NYPD to extremely strictly enforce bus lanes, more bus service etc etc. But im a realist enough to know thats a pipe dream. So this is what we get.

Also I dont think people realize how much (in my humble opinion) it sucks to work on these rails, sure they make money but theyre in the tunnels that are wet, damp, humid, rat filled with a fucking 300 ton train that goes by them as they are working or above ground unprotected to the elements in the heat or the cold. Man pay those guys, complain about the higher ups.

These guys and gals are literally keeping the life blood of NYC going.
