It does its job, but compared to some others I've been in... not so great. Don't know where you guys live, but the trains/buses I take generally run on the most annoying schedules. I'll have 5 buses in a minute, then be without one for half an our. Plus, over the last year or so, trains the E and F seem to run local in Queens every second day (especially when coming home from the Garden)

As I said. It's tough to maintain such a large system, but I've seen other cities do it better. Never been to Ottawa, but Montreal's is much better in comparison.
