You know what, GOP, Gothamist doesn't care if you refuse to use our subways. Just because the subways would be scads faster than the bus shuttles you're proposing for your delegates, from their hotels to Madison Square Garden during the Republican National Convention, it doesn't mean speed is important. Gothamist is happy to have the hot, sweaty, stinky August subways left to us and the thousand other people already in the subway car.

Former Mayor Ed Koch, volunteer coordinator for the convention, says the GOP can do whatever they want, "We'd never tell them no. Whatever's best for them, as they see it. We're here to serve them. I think lots of people would use the subways anyway, because it's the quickest way to get around." And for the record, it seems the Democrats had shuttles when their convention was here and will likely have shuttles in Boston.
