Mark your calendar for December 1. That's when the City Council will have a public hearing for commuters to complain about the insanity of weekend subway diversions (especially the ones on the L!). City Councilman John Liu, who heads the Council's Transportation Committee says, "We want the MTA to do whatever repair work is required...but the disruptions are so numerous and pervasive that there's serious lack of accountability." True, but will the NYC subway-riding public find doing repair work at night, causing even more evening disruptions, palatable? Don't get us wrong - Gothamist is very thankful for the subways, as much as we gripe. We'd just like to get from one place to another less confusion.
