Actually... The MTA and the NYC subway system have been declared to be in crisis. See the link below. http://www.metro.us/news/local-news/new-york/mta-state-emergency-cuomo-says I like the NYC system too. It's big. Which makes us think it's world class. But transit in Toronto is pretty good. I used it last night to go to the baseball game where only someone with a lot of patience and cash would drive. Our biggest beef is that there is not enough transit in Toronto. It has been a long haul from the 70s to here. It has made for some shitty commutes and worn nerves. So we have a round of funding that brought TYSSE, say $6 billion, ECLRT, say $8+ billion, GO Rail various, $13.5 billion, and this week's federal contribution which brings another say $15 billion to the table with a serious heavy rail people mover in the cards. All of that together would be a meaningful improvement and a step toward world class. 'World class' is a terrible expression. It's like 'good' or 'important'. Two things that you never say about yourself. If you have to, then you aren't.
