No way will the urine smells subside. The system is going back to the urban jungle period of the 70's-90's. There will be a plethora of bodily odors at every turn down there as everything is neglected.

You forgot the best part of that time period. When stick up kids would walk through the cars robbing everyone.

OK, listen, you're not going to like this, but I'm telling you anyway. As a tower operator with MTA who worked for five and a half years as a conductor, I can say from experience that the vast majority (translation: virtually all) of the people who b*tch and moan about this never, and I mean NEVER, make official complaints to MTA. They may say something to the train crews, and certainly on sites like C-D, but never put complaints in writing to the power-that-be (MTA headquarters are at 2 Broadway, if you're interested).

MTA is a strange organization, in that it has the capability to get amazing things done...when it wants to. I will guarantee you that if enough people complained about some of their more disgusting fellow straphangers, something would be done.

They're so amazing that they were genius enough to partake in risky bonds and lose millions. SIMPLY AMAZING!

Sorry Fred, I never meant to be rude. My anger towards this whole situation got the best of me.

Didn't take it as rudeness! As far as financial losses go, MTA got hit as hard as anyone else. That's one thing they can't be faulted for.

But I did mean what I said about making complaints directly to them. For a change, there's an actual transit professional (Lee Sander) in charge. If enough complaints about disgusting behavior land on his desk, I do believe something will be done.

Everybody has complaints. New York is the complaining capital of the United States, after all! But I believe you know what I meant: there are legitimate, genuine complaints, and then there's unjustified venting. (As I've said in other threads, I got to know the difference while I was a conductor. The latter is never appreciated. Nor acted upon, for that matter).
