The Head of New York City Transit Andy Byford is opening himself up to questions on Twitter tomorrow morning beginning at 10:30am. He says no subject will be off limits during the 90 minute session. He will be using the handle NYCT Subway, which has more than 900,000 followers.
The Twitter forum comes on the heels of a report the MTA may not be telling the complete truth about why subway trains are late. According to the Daily News, transit officials were unable to determine why more than 10,000 trains were delayed in January. They reportedly divided those numbers into 14 existing delay categories like weather, police investigations, and sick passengers. But none of those causes may have actually been the reason for the late trains. The last thing we would want is our Transit System to be telling tales to millions of customers who ride the trains delay.
