Commuter council blasts LIRR brass
A scathing report from the MTA's Permanent Citizens Advisory Committee (PCAC) blasts Long Island Rail Road management.
The report demands better scheduling on the railroad. PCAC also says the LIRR must better control work rule violations.
The group cites the driving of a train by a passenger, a near-collision in Bridgehampton and stranding of passengers in Wyandanch during a snowstorm as examples of failure in the past year.
Councilmember Maureen Michaels blames LIRR problems on the constant turnover of top management.
"It's a revolving door," she says.
The committee will present its report to the LIRR and MTA at a regularly scheduled meeting next week.
