Port Authority Checking Into Recent T Delays

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Allegheny County Executive Dan Onorato is promising a full investigation of an apparent “slowdown” by Port Authority T drivers angry over discipline for some of their colleagues.

The problems started before Christmas. Two union drivers were punished for driving at excessive speeds. Then earlier this week, another driver was taken off the job and was sent home for driving too slowly.

“This is clearly an ugly situation,” Jim Ritchie, a spokesman for the Port Authority, said. “Riders are the people paying the price here. Passengers are trying to get home in the evening and they’re standing around waiting for a t-car to show up.”

The Port Authority is pulling data trying to determine if a drastic slowdown along T routes this week is deliberate.

Passengers say their travel time on the T has doubled and tripled.

“Rendell should never have given the money to them – let Port Authority fold and let them re-vamp everything starting from the top all the way down,” a woman who did not want to be identified said.

Drivers say they’re just paying attention to policy and speed limits.

“They have to review their speed limits and they have to revise them or they have to give us more scheduled time to make the trip,” Pat McMahon with the union said.

County council and the county executive are gathering information. If it shows drivers caused deliberate slowdowns, they want immediate action.

“If what we’re hearing is true, it is totally disgusting that this is happening,” Onorato said. “If we find out individual drivers are doing this deliberately, they should be fired immediately.”

Union leaders say the accusations are not true and there is no deliberate slowdown.

County council will subpoena drivers as early as next week for a special fact-finding hearing.

    FIRE ALL OF THE PORT AUTHORITY DRIVERS GET RID OF THE AUTHORITY AND LET PRIVATE CONCERNS TAKE OVER.END OF TRANSIT PROBLEMS.

    And Unions wonder why they have ZERO PUBLIC SUPPORT now a days…..

    GO PRIVATE!!!!!

    1. superfine says:

      Unions have alot of support. But they need more. Just remember if it was not for unions there would be no middle class in this country. Give yourself a little history lesson you need it. As the unions die off in this country so does the middle class. Everyday more jobs are shipped out of this country. Union or not don’t think it can’t or won’t happen to you. Until we get back to the days of caring about our neighbors and wanting to see everyone do better and live better this country will continue to be on the decline.

    have any of the bus drivers been disciplined. i’m on those things when the bus is packed shoulder to shoulder and they fly and then make sudden stops and people go flying! not enough buses but they don’t change the schedules to meet the public needs so times are ALWAYS off and overcrowded!!!!!!!

  5. Tbone1737 says:

    If you look out the window while on the T you’ll see posted speed limits which the operators are being HIGHLY ENCOURAGED to adhere too. PennDot is involved, and the crackdown on speeders came down from them. Other issues are involved, like severely damaged rail supports in the Mount Lebanon tunnel, and increased slip and fall occurrences on the T itself due to wet floors and salt debris. Once new SOP ( Standard Operating Procedures) are issued to address these concerns, and the schedules adjusted to compensate for any other issues, things will be operating as normal as can be expected. The operators are only doing what their bosses WANT them to do!

  6. WayToGoPens09 says:

    The T drivers are very rude. I saw one of the drivers close the door on a customer as she was trying to board the trolley . . . . . SO IGNORANT!!!!!

  7. CRY BABY DRIVERS says:

    HEY YOU CRYBABY DRIVERS. IF YOU ARE DRIVING A CAR AND VIOLATE THE RULES YOU GET A TICKET. MAYBE YOU ALL NEED SOME EAP BECAUSE YOU CRYBABYS ARE BEING TOLD TO DRIVE APPROPRIATELY. IF YOU CANNOT HANDLE IT, QUIT YOUR JOB DRIVING THE T. I MEAN IT GOTTA BE HARD. YOU NEED TO STOP.GO. STOP. GO. STOP. GO. GEEZ, AND MAYBE YOU COULD SHOW UP FOR WORK AND TRY TO BE NICE TO YOUR CUSTOMERS INSTEAD OF ABUSING US WITH YOUR RELENTLESS WHINING ABOUT BEING ABLE TO STOP. GO. STOP. GO. MAN UP, GET OVER YOURSELVES.

  8. BC says:

    What kind of reporting is this? A few quick paragraphs and nothing more? Let the print professionals handle it.

  9. superfine says:

    I am so sick of the Port Authority putting all the blame on the bus drivers. And I really wish all you people would get the facts before you make your dumb comments. I’ll bet my life that none of you who want the authority to be privitized don’t even ride a bus. You need to just zip it. As a city we are sooooo lucky to have public transit. And lets face it folks wiithout it there goes the voted number 1 city to live in. The authority needs to tell the truth for a change. When has the authority ever taken any blame for anything its ALWAYS the drivers. Just like most of you they go to work and do what they are told period. If they get a half hour to get from point A to point B but in reality it takes forty minutes what do they think a driver is going to do? just like you when you leave late for work, your gonna speed. DUH! So when a driver gets disiplined for speeding what do you think happens. He/she is going to slow down right. You would think that the bosses (whom have never driven a bus or trolley by the way) would say to themselves, “hey maybe they need more time so they can be safe.’ WOW! and to think I needed four years of college to figure that out. For you smart folks who call them cry babies. Have you never complained about your job? Or your boss? or anything? Give me a break. And if its true that city council is going to investigate. I only have this to say. Don’t you have more important things to worry about than a late trolley.

    1. CRY BABY says:

      NUMBER ONE IN WAGES, NUMBER ONE IN POOR WORK PERFORMANCE, NUMBER ONE AT BEATING UP CUSTOMERS, NUMBER ONE IN LACK OF COMMON SENSE, NUMBER ONE IN NOT SHOWING UP AT ALL, NUMBER ONE AT TRYING TO TEACH YOUR CUSTOMERS TO HATE THE SERVICE, YOURE DISGUSTING. GROW UP, DO YOUR JOB OR QUIT. IF YOU DO SOMETHING WRONG, PAY THE PRICE LEARN A LESSON, MAN UP AND MOVE ON. YOU BIG CRY BABIES ARE NUMBER ONE ALLRIGHT.

    2. ZOEYZOTRON says:

      FACT -THE PORT AUTHORITY’S EXPENSES FAR EXCEED INCOME. THAT EQUALS BANKRUPTCY.

      “Records show that the highest paid bus driver made more than $131,000. Four other bus drivers made over $100,000 and nearly 50 drivers made more than $80,000”.

      1. ZOEYZOTRON says:

        SUPERFINE – I don’t care about anything that you wrote above. I am strictly speaking about Finances and your don’t add up. I don’t care if drivers wages get slashed, or “management”, Pensions replaced by 401k, less holidays, layoffs, or larger contributions to Healthcare costs. Bottom line is something will have to give. And as the economy worsens it will give…

      2. superfine says:

        FACT>>> PUBLIC TRANSIT WAS NEVER EVER SUPPOSED TO MAKE MONEY!!! IF IT WAS YOUR RIDE WOULD COST A HELL OF ALOT MORE!!! FACT! HEALTH CARE COSTS ARE THROUGH THE ROOF!!! NO ONE CAN AFFORD IT!!! FACT FUEL COSTS ARE THROUGH THE ROOF!!! IF YOU ACTUALLY KNEW ANYTHING ABOUT PATS TWO DIFFERENT BUDGETS YOU WOULD SEE THAT THESE TWO FACTS ARE IN THE TOP FIVE OF BIGGEST COSTS TO THE AUTHORITY. AND I GUESS YOUR NEXT REPLY WILL SAY SOMRTHING LIKE WE SHOULD PAY OUR OWN HEALTH CARE. AND I’ll GIVE YOU MY RESPONSE TO THAT NOW. CAN YOU OR ANYONE ELSE YOU KNOW PAY YOUR IWN HEALTH CARE????? AND THE ANSWER WOULD BE NO NO NO !!!!! YOU SHOULD BE WRITING LETTERS DEMANDING HEALTH CARE REFORM OR BETTER YET DEMAND UNIVERSIAL HEALTH CARE FOR EVERYONE!!!! SINCE YOU LIKE TO MAKE UP YOUR OWN FACTS LIKE THEY ARE DAVID LETTERMANS TOP TEN DID YOU KNOW THAT WE ARE THE ONLY DEMOCRACY IN THE WORLD THAT DOES NOT HAVE UNIVERSIAL HEALTH CARE!!!! DOES THAT MAKE YOU ANGRY???

      3. superfine says:

        MAN ZOEYZOTRON THAT LAST STATEMENT SPOKE VOLUMES ABOUT YOU. DO ALL OF US A FAVOR AND ZIP IT. ALL PEOPLE LIKE YOU WANT TO DO IS COMPLAIN AND TALK LIKE YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR TALKING ABOUT. WHICH YOU DO NOT. THIS WAS ABOUT DRIVERS DOING THE SPEED LIMIT AND YOU AND MISTER CRY BABY MADE IT ABOUT THE DRIVERS. AS ALWAYS. LOOK AT MOST BUSINESSES THAT GO UNDER. I DON’T CARE WHAT THEY ARE. THE WORKING MAN ALWAYS GETS BLAMED. THE UNIONS ALWAYS GET BLAMED. AND MOST TIMES ITS ALWAYS REALLY ABOUT MIS-MANAGEMENT!!! IF YOU WANT THE TRUTH HERE IT IS. THE PORT AUTHORITY CAN BE SAVED. ALL IT NEEDS TO DO IS GO BACK TO BEING A TRANSIT COMPANY. WHAT DO YOU NNEED FOR TRANSIT??? 1-BUSES AND TROLLEYS. 2-DRIVERS. 3- MAINTENENCE WORKS TO KEEP THEM RUNNING. PERIOD!!!!! GET BACK TO THAT AND YOU’LL HAVE ALL YOU NEED.

  10. Daniel says:

    Rode the T today. Used my cell phone GPS speedometer app. The driver adhered to the POSTED speed limits at ALL times. We were delayed because of his following the posted speed limits. He did his job as required by the speed limit signs. Port Authority needs to increase the trip times or raise the speed limit. I do not blame the drivers for simply following the rules set by PAT.

  11. Return Mister Rogers' Neighborhood says:

    When have you ever thought to yourself “this bus is going too fast”. Never. Buses and trolleys should go faster, not slower. If they were faster people would ride them. These drivers might be nice guys as individuals, but as union pawns they are slime. They have a tough job, but so do most their riders, except the drivers are paid more. When drivers can hide behind the union and pull these stunts without reprisal we all lose. I dont want to single out the drivers because the management is no better, and there are riders out there spitting, slapping, cussing at drivers every day. Everybody needs to grow up and stop the pettiness and find some manners.

    1. angel25daisy says:

      try being the one standing, holding your child, etc when the bus is going to fast and has to stop. not so much fun. welcome to my world. before the cuts, not so big of an issue. now, when every bus is packed to the gills too big of a safety issue. i would love to pay my money, get there without incident and quickly, but….. they need to increase trip times. they can stop if they are ahead, but safety is a factor when they are too fast.

  12. Nancy says:

    Union or not, one thing is clear at the Port Authority: whether you are the ceo, administrator, board member, engineer, operator, mechanic, fare box attendant, website manager, dispatcher, or cleaning crew, you have no interest in making the experience more convenient for your customer. These people all, top to bottom, are looking to do less and get paid more to do it, and our idiot state lawmakers keep filling their pockets without batting an eye. And with no end in sight. You all disgust me.

  13. LindA says:

    It’s been crazy trying to take the T this week. If this is true, all of these drivers should be disciplined. It’s a very childish and juvenile reaction to their colleagues getting reprimanded. There are a lot of people working very hard at their jobs all day, and they just want to do is get home. The trolley is already a crowded, jostling ride on the way home and these guys need to try to do their jobs. Show some respect to your clientele, man up and do your job. I moved to Pittsburgh last year, one of the reasons being because they did have public transport in place, and I must say that it is an extreme disappointment from the west coast. Had my husband and I been aware of the terrible service here, we probably would have chose another city. Get your act together Port Authority!!

  14. ZOEYZOTRON says:

    This is nothing more than UNION THUGGARY and I am sick of it. They are paid entirely too much and I know this because they now need to be bailed out by tax payers every six months. The entire transit system needs to be reviewed and re-vamped. Why are cuts always about service?? I never hear a word about Union concessions… By the way, school bus drivers make like 12.00 an hour, not 80,000+ a year, so you know where i would start….

    1. superfine says:

      Yet another uneducated country heard from. The fact is that before 911 the authority had no problems getting federal funding. After 911 now the feds are giving all that money to fight that little pesky war in iraq. So now you have all these agencies fighting for the same few dollars. You guys kill me with stupidity. Instead of this stupid blog you should be wring to your congressmen ,senators ,representitives demanding better wages cheaper and better health care for you your children your neighbors. Their are now atleast 47 million people living in poverty in the united states of america. Get mad about that!!!! Stop putting down hard working people.

      1. SUPERFINE? says:

        HARD WORKING? IS THAT HOW YOU VIEW IT? ALL THAT DRIVING AND STOPPING MUST BE KILLIN YA. QUIT. GET A NEW JOB. ONE THAT YOU MAY BE GOOD AT.

      2. superfine says:

        AND SCRUBBIN TOILETS MUST BE ROUGH ON YOU. AS I PREVIOUSLY THOUGHT YOU HAVE NOTHING REAL TO SAY. GET OVER YOURSELF CRY BABY, I SURE HAVE.

      3. ZOEYZOTRON says:

        AGAIN – Why can’t the PORT AUTHORTY SUPPORT ITSELF….. ANSWER PENSIONS AND BLOATED WAGES.

        SUPERFINE – No one buys the UNION BULLSH!T ANYMORE. PENSIONS ARE GOING AWAY, DEAL WITH IT LIKE THE REST OF US.

      4. superfine says:

        THERE YOU GO WITH YOUR UNEDUCATED COMMENTS. FACT… PORT AUTHORITY HAS NOT HAD TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE UNIONS END OF THE PENSION FOR ATLEAST 15 YEARS!!!!!!! JUST RECENTLY HAVE THEY HAD TO PUT ANY MONEY IN.. YOU HAVE NO FACTS. NONE!!!

      5. superfine says:

        Thats what I don’t get about people like you. Why do you just accept?? When do you stand up and fight!!! I’ll fight everyday before i give up my pension. What are you worth dude??? What are we all worth!! NEVER EVER GIVE Up!!! You gotta fight for what you believe in. You think i’m a bad guy because i DEMAND health care. I’m a bad guy because i work hard. I pay into my pension. You know I see ederly working at places like wendy’s and it makes me sooooo ANGRY!!!! That should not happen. You gotta stand up and fight for what you believe in.

  15. Marilea says:

    The buses are very crowded. Most of the time during evening rush hour the bus are so full they pass you up leaving passengers to wait in the below freezing temperatures for the next full bus only to be passed up again. It is a vicious cycle of problems that will only get worse. The everyday passengers are the ones suffering.

  16. Burgnerdman says:

    Those operators should be fired, if it is found out that they are slowing down on purpose. I would be very happy to have their job. I would do a better job too.

  17. angel25daisy says:

    i gave up driving and parking in the city because of the increase in leases. if they are going to keep increasing fares and decreasing service what was the point. until we all take a stand and say enough they are going to keep doing what they are doing and blaming each other for it. no leadership or cooperation anywhere it that system. ANYWHERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. CRY BABY says:

    HEY SUPERFINE, IF I DO SOMETHING WRONG ON MY JOB, I PAY THE PRICE. NOT LIKE THE CRY BABY DRIVERS WHO CANNOT MAN UP. THEY NEED EVERYBODY TO SLOW DOWN AND MISS THEIR SCHEDULES COMPLETELY TO TEACH MANAGEMENT A LESSON? GROW UP. GO TO WORK AND DRIVE. STOP. DRIVE. STOP. DRIVE. STOP. YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE THE CUSTOMERS MORE DISSATISIFIED THAN WE ALREADY ARE. BUNCHA GROWN MEN MAKING UP EXCUSES FOR POOR LOUSY WORK PERFORMANCE. QUIT YOUR JOBS YOU BIG BABIES.

  19. CRY BABY says:

    SUPERFINE, REALLY? YOU MUST BE ONE OF THEM LOUSY DRIVERS MAKING UP EXCUSES BECAUSE YOU ARE A BUNCH OF THUGS. AND YOU DRIVE LOUSY. AND NOW YOU DONT DRIVE AT ALL? YEAH DRIVING THE T, SLAMMING ON YOUR BREAKS SO WOMEN HOLDING INFANTS GO FLYING, THAT IS WHAT YOU DO…..YOURE A BUNCH OF BULLIES AND NOW YOU DONT WANNA SHOW UP ON YOUR JOB BECAUSE SOMEONE DID SOMETHING WRONG AND GOT CAUGHT. MOST PEOPLE LEARN A LESSON AND DONT REPEAT IT, YOU GUYS HIDE BEHIND “FOLLOWING THE RULES”. DO YOUR RULES INCLUDE SHOWING UP FOR WORK? DRIVING RIGHT? STOPING AND GOING, AND MORE STOPPING AND GOING? BECAUSE YOU ARE FAILING AND EVERYONE WHO RIDES THE T KNOWS YOU ARE THUGS.

    1. ZOEYZOTRON says:

      CRY BABY – you really want to get angry… read this…

      “Records show that the highest paid bus driver made more than $131,000. Four other bus drivers made over $100,000 and nearly 50 drivers made more than $80,000”.

      1. CRY BABY says:

        MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN WAGES AND THEY REFUSE TO USE COMMON SENSE. I WAS ON THE T THE MORNING THE DRIVER ANNOUNCED IT WAS NOT A “JOB ACTION” EVERYONE WAS OUTRAGED AS SHE ADVISED SHE MUST GO 10MPH IN TUNNELS, BLAH BLAH BLAH. NO ONE BELIEVES THESE THUGS. IS IT HARD TO STOP AT FLASHING RED LIGHTS AND STOP SIGNS, PICK UP PASSENGERS (WHO ARE PAYING A LOT OF MONEY)? AND. MAYBE YOU COULD WAIT UNTIL A PERSON GETS TO THE FRONT OF THE CROWDED T BEFORE YOU PULL OUT AND SCOLD THE CUSTOMER CARRYING A BABY, THAT SHE WAS NOT FAST ENOUGH AND YOU HAD TO GO…. IF THAT IS TOO MUCH TO AS FOR 80 GRAND A YEAR, PLEASE QUIT YOUR JOB. YOU POOR VICTIMIZED DRIVERS, HIDE BEHIND YOUR RULES AND ABUSE YOUR CUSTOMERS, WAY TO GO!! MAN UP. DO YOUR JOB, USE COMMON SENSE. OH WAIT, YOU DONT HAVE ANY.

      2. superfine says:

        OUT OF 1500 DRIVERS. Puts in into perspective doesn’t it. If you can add do the math. Or let me help you. The aveage driver makes 53,000 a year on a forty hour week. So lets see that means those drivers worked atleast 80 hour weeks!!!! OOOOOMMMMMMGGGGGGG!!!!! They should be ashamed.

    2. ZOEYZOTRON says:

      SUPERFINE – Even at 53,000 a year that is too much for a Bus Driver in Pittsburgh. don’t forget to add in the Healthcare costs and the Pensions…. The numbers dictate it is unsustainable, not me. But you keep preaching your UNION BULLSH!T all the way to the unemployment line….

      1. superfine says:

        I feel sorry for you dude. Now I know you have a minimum wage paying job and you have let them beat you down. I don’t know what you think your worth. But lucky for you, you have people like me who think your worth alot. So i’ll fight for you. And maybe if you listen to me instead of putting me down for what I do. Maybe one day you’ll make a stand with me. Amd you’ll fight so that companies like WALMART. Who make litterallymake billions in profits a year. Will start giving their employees health care and pensions. Do me a favor and look ninto your history. And you’ll see back when people cared about each other everyone did better. I’ll fight for my union everyday. Even if I go to the unemployment line!!!!

  20. CRY BABY DRIVERS says:

    NUMBER ONE IN WAGES, NUMBER ONE IN POOR WORK PERFORMANCE, NUMBER ONE AT BEATING UP CUSTOMERS, NUMBER ONE IN LACK OF COMMON SENSE, NUMBER ONE IN NOT SHOWING UP AT ALL, NUMBER ONE AT TRYING TO TEACH YOUR CUSTOMERS TO HATE THE SERVICE, YOURE DISGUSTING. GROW UP, DO YOUR JOB OR QUIT. IF YOU DO SOMETHING WRONG, PAY THE PRICE LEARN A LESSON, MAN UP AND MOVE ON. YOU BIG CRY BABIES ARE NUMBER ONE ALLRIGHT.

  21. superfine says:

    Cry baby sounds to superfine like your having yet another bad day. Do you need a hug?

  22. superfine says:

    Cry baby it just hit me why your so angry. Port Authority turned you down for the job!!!!! You wanted to be one of the so called THUGS and they wouldn’t let you. All you have is a very large mouth. You spew number ones as if they were facts. Which they ARE NOT!!!!

    1. THUG DRIVERS says:

      YOU HAVENT BEAT UP CUSTOMERS? YOU HAVE NO “JOB ACTION” GOING ON? YOU DO NOT PUNISH YOUR CUSTOMERS? PLEASE. MAN UP. ADMIT YOURE LOUSY AT YOUR JOB AND QUIT. MOVE ON BECAUSE YOU CANT EVEN GET A TICKET WITHOUT CRYING LIKE BABIES. YOU ARE OVERPAID AND UNDERWORKED. ALL THAT DRIVING ON THE TRACKS IS TOOOOOO MUCH FOR YOU. JUST QUIT, YOURE LOUSY AT YOUR JOB.

  23. Arnie says:

    Fire every one of these overpaid SLOBS. Then fire the suits and ties who pay these pigs the same as a real job. Ralph Cramden needn’t be paid six figures to drive a freakin bus. Get the homeless guys to do it – you’ll see great service and maybe even a polite drive once in a while. Over paid, brainless slobs.

    1. above the law says:

      dear over paid drivers, you got a ticket, pay your fine and get a grip. did your union boss really think a job action was the answer? somehow i doubt it. somehow i believe the drivers are bullies and jerks, that dont listen to anyone. they are above the law. they get a ticket, and you get to be late for work? they cant just pay their ticket, learn their lesson and be glad they have a job? no driver at port authority has ever done anything wrong, they have not killed people this year, run lights and stop signs, broke down for no apparent reason, called off sick for no reason, missed their route, muscled the public and their bosses, milked port authority for overtime, abused the customers, beat customers half to death, they are all innocent vicitm of the company rules. bullies, brainless slobs, i hope you all go under. i hope you know you are causing the whole system to fail, not the state, you are doing it. you are criminals and your are stealing from all of us.

      1. give it a rest says:

        LOL

      2. GIVE IT A BREAK says:

        give it a rest when the t shows up. when you live 2 miles away and it takes over an hour to get home……….i say port authority drivers are NOT doing their job. PAY YOUR STUPID MOVING VIOLATION TICKET AND GET BACK TO WORK ALREADY

      3. superfine says:

        Dear above the law. What do you do for a living? I can bet its a minimum wage paying job. Or maybe you don’t even work. But no matter what it is you got alot of nerve to call anyone over paid. Until you have done the job you should just shut your pie hole. The drivers aren’t complaining about the speed limit moron. They are trying to figure out how to do their job so they cam please complaining big mouths such as yourself. They can’t keep the schedule on time if they have to follow the speed limits set for them. UNDERSTAND… They are given a scedule to follow and when they are late people complain so they do what they have to do to try and keep on time. Do you get it!! NO YOU DON’T! AND WHY because you don’t do the job. And if you would just look around you would see that most of these people are just trying to do their job.

  24. give it a break says:

    i dont see anyone trying to do their job. they want to beat up passengers, slam on their brakes, run em over on the street with baby strollers, in fact, if they just quit showing up alltogether, port authority could get people who want to work. its a job action, WHY? because they got a flipn ticket and NOBODY BUT NOBODY gives a stupid driver a ticket without everyone else paying for it. morons, thugs, slobs, i think everyone here covered it.

    1. superfine says:

      You obviously have mental issues. And like I said before if the service sucks so bad why don’t you get a car and drive yourself. Let me guess you can’t pass the test. You keep talking about TICKETS. Drivers need to pay tickets blah blah blah. You still don’t know what your talking about cry baby. There was never a ticket given to pay mister college grad. Since they won’t let you drive a car maybe you should get a bicicle with a big horn to match your mouth. GET OVER IT ALREADY. I got one word for you. PROZAC!!!!

      1. jerk driver says:

        you must be the driver who killed a person.

      2. superfine says:

        LOL. I MUST HAVE KILLED SOMEBODY??? ARE YOU HIGH??? Do you have something real to say. Or just more of the dumbness.

  25. buslady says:

    Dear port authority drivers, I just got home from work. I just wanted to say THANK YOU!!!! I honestly don’t know how you do it everyday. Between the weather, traffic, and all the big mouths who ride and trust me I’ve been stuck listening to enough of them on the bus and off. I just want you to know you are appreciated. I wouldn’t do your job for all the money in the world!!!!!! So you just keep up the good work. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

    1. thugs says:

      T DRIVERS MUST HAVE LEARNED A LESSON.

      1. slowdown says:

        They dont need to show up to work. They dont need to even drive when they do show up. Everything just breaks down with the few bad drivers they have at port authority. The drivers dont need the overtime, therefore you do not get any service. they do not care if you can get to a game, or work, or anywhere else. They dont care to wait for you to get on or off a bus or a T, they are busy driving the entire system into the ground. The job action is a stupid move, with no real positive goal at the end of the game they are playing. If they never get another contract, it is their own fault. Not enough volunteers for overtime? So they cannot be forced to work overtime or straight time. The lack of service is nothing short of theft. There is no pride in job performance.
