Keep The T Train Running.

The T train (or the Second Avenue Subway) is a much needed addition to the New York City Subway System. Just ask anybody who rides the 4, 5, or 6 train lines under Lexington Ave, especially during Weekdays. The three lines serve some of the busiest sections in the city, such as the Upper East Side, East Midtown, Union Square and the Financial District. Its average of 1.3 million daily riders on this single line exceeds the daily traffic load of the entire Washington Metro system (which has the second-highest ridership in the U.S.), and exceeds the combined daily ridership of the rail transit systems of San FranciscoChicago and Boston. And just ask anybody who takes those lines to work. They will tell you, it is extremely overcrowded. I take it too, to get to my doctors. It it always crowded. It is even a MIRACLE if there is a train cay that is not full. That is why we need the Second Avenue Subway. We need it ease overcrowding on the 4, 5, and 6 trains, since again, they're the only trains that serve the Upper East Side and East Midtown. The Second Avenue Subway Project is important, and the people of New York need it, and would benefit greatly from it.

Don't kill it now, when we need it the most.
