I'm dreaming of warm fingers and toes...

Dear MTA:

I understand the holiday season brings added traffic and gridlock but this shouldn’t explain the 30 minutes I’ve had to wait for a bus on 3 separate occasions. In the past two weeks, I’ve stood in frigid temps hoping to see the electronic sign on a bus creeping down the street.

As the fellow commuters and I huddled together en masse like penguins seeking bodily warmth, we watched 6 buses drive past us going southbound. 4 of these buses were Not in Service.

Please be considerate to your passengers and adjust for the traffic you may hit in midtown. Take those Not In Service buses and put them to work in the Upper West Side.

Frigidly yours,
