The E- train was sitting in the Jamaica Station for a few minutes as straphangers gathered on the platform. The day 12/10/14 was gloomy with intermittent drizzles. Straphangers appeared un-energetic after yesterday's record breaking all-day rainfall.
The train opened its doors around 9:04 a.m. Slowly, straphangers began boarding. Then, suddenly there was a burst of energy. Straphangers were quickly exiting cars and boarding the next.
This maneuver continued for few cars. I entered to inquire; what a mess, it was: car # 9411 had a brown drainage that looked like feces from diarrhea with a bum at the other end. Another bum was taking-up an entire six-seater. The car possessed a faint scent......
Car #9411 -- shit? & bum
You all have the opportunity to speak to the wise men of the MTA. Please expound the riding conditions to them, on behalf of Queens riders/VOTERS/residents.
This is yet another environment where our health is at risk. Take these bums off our trains. The purpose of MTA is transportation, NOT a shelter.
Furthermore, Jamaica Center is the first station leaving from Queens for Manhattan. The trains ought to be cleaned and disinfected before take off.
As for MTA board member, Mr. Charles Moerdler who believes banning bag backs is the answer, for making more space for straphangers. Well wise guy, you can have these tax payers' spaces for you and your whole family.
Madam Katz, please take a trip on the trains. Experience the shit your constituents have to endure. This is all before a hard day's work.
