In the hub-bub about the token booth closures at various subway stations, we seem to have not made our voices loud enough.
How do you get a bike on the New York City Subway if there are no token booth clerks? Without someone to open the service gate, you cannot get a bike on the subway. This same service gate problem holds for bikes, strollers, shopping carts, and everything else people get onto the subways with.
The answer from the MTA thus far: "We're investigating solutions."
How much do you want to bet the MTA goes ahead with the closures first, then comes up with some half-assed solution to the problem?
