Come On Ride the Subway

The New York Post is reporting that its much easier to ride the New York City subway as of late because job losses during 2009 has caused a decline in the number of people riding public transit.  That’s probably part of the reason.  But as Sweetness & Light points out, the economic downturn can’t be the only factor; the recent MTA fare increases may also have something to do with emptier subways.  It is surprising that the Post missed this.  People usually buy less of a service when it grows more expensive.

As for me, the thought of personal space on the subway almost makes me want to move back to New York.
