It's difficult to say. An EMS response would definitely be an incident, and they'll group all the delays related to that in one incident report. Sometimes the source of delays are less clear and it's tricky to group them all together.

Extremely "It's one elevator, Michael...what could it cost, $20 million?" vibes to this Capital Plan.

I was informed by this was from February. Clearly my brain excised it from my memory on purpose to spare me the torture.

Ten million wasted dollars. The money should be spent to maintain Utica Ave. bus service that was slashed today. If a Utica Ave. subway extension is ever pursued, all this work will need to be redone by people who actually know how to build a subway

To recap: our governor seems to think we have flying and self-driving cars but not trains that can communicate with each other?

When your cost savings plan doesn't include any numbers about how much you plan to save and all your major projects still cost more than the last time you priced them out, your cost saving plan fucking blows.

The great paradox of this capital plan is whether we should welcome a plan that addresses many of the system's most urgent needs so cost-ineffectively that it could potentially bankrupt the agency that runs it.

This was of course during peak Overcrowding excuse-making period, which makes it all the better

I was told a story I could never 100% verify that during the 2017 crisis a PR person pitched the idea of telling passengers delays just means "one more song to listen to on your iPod." The idea was eventually shot down but I think about it a lot.

**Takes out crowbar to bash your kneecap in** Look I know all you do is complain about how I kneecap you with this crowbar but I'm the only one trying to find you funds for reconstructive surgery.

I'm increasingly of the belief it's laziness and risk aversion more than stringint opposition.

The super annoying thing about NYC streets is we regularly pedestrianize large chunks of it for various festivals/celebrations and everyone has a great time then it's taken as granted we obviously can't do that all the time because reasons.

I have been lectured time and again how the capital budget is not the operating budget but it's nevertheless perverse to pitch a $51 billion five-year capital budget while slashing bus service on one of Brooklyn's busiest routes.
