Hi i'm jerry murphy from city limits and this is ben max from gotham gazette and we're pleased to have on the podcast today nicole jelena's the senior fellow at the manhattan institute who focuses on new york economics and infrastructure there and also a columnist at the new york post you should find her combs and read them all thanks for joining us thanks ben thanks jared i'm happy to be here so we're going to talk mostly mta on there's a lot happening with the with the mta management budgeting etc a new transit chief who's got a lot of ideas and a big new plan and obviously lots of budget considerations in than people's everyday lives that are affected by it so just sort of broadly speaking you know where things at right now how are you evaluating what's happening with the mta will i think it's been a year since governor cuomo started to put his new management in police at the mta he pointed joe lhota to be chairman a year ago this week and since then he he put in some other top managers throughout less summer and so now that we've had a year more or less of allowing these people to do their work i think there's two things people are thinking about are the immediate problems the delays and in disorder getting better and longer term have they finally put in place a plan on what to build how to build it more quickly so that we have better faster service so i guess let's hit on those two things where they add in terms of seeing some progress or not on the day to day running of the subways well with the delays there's really no discernible trend in either direction the good news is that things seem to have stopped getting worse the bad news is they're not getting demonstracy demonstrably better yet for the writers last month for example sixty six percent streams were on time that was better than the sixty one percent of the previous month but on the other hand they had eighty five major incidents which was worse than the month the previous year when they had seventy five major incidents so if you're with the governor has made statements saying people will soon see that things are getting better but so far the writers can't be blamed if they're still seeing more or less the same level of delays they were seeing less year now february march yes we had some bad weather and so forth and we really need a few more months before we can say yes things are getting better no they're not or they're still just going up and down either way but for now no it's not time to declare victory at
