  • The MTA sounds like it will fight the state tooth and nail when they could put that effort into actually addressing the safety issues. How soon ’til Ford is gone?

    I think this now falls on the board. Ford has shown time again he is only good at dodging responsibility. If the MTA is going to get anywhere while he is still the CEO, the board needs to stand up and demand action be taken.
