The day of reckoning is upon us. One month after Governor Cuomo declared the MTA to be in a state of emergency, his newly-appointed MTA Chairman Joe Lhota will deliver a hotly-anticipated plan to "stabilize and modernize" the troubled transit system.
Will he unveil a common sense plan to repair the antiquated signal system, prioritizing preventative maintenance and accountability to commuters? Trot out another decades-old legal statute in an attempt to separate the state-run authority from state responsibility? Threaten to kill one kitten per day until people stop tweeting mean things at Cuomo?
For now, no one can say. Tune in at 2:30 for Joe Lhota's announcement about the future of your commute.
