This Week: Transit Oddities

This week, NY Mag’s Daily Intel wants to know: Would you rather give birth on the R train or the B61 bus? It’s not an idle question. Back to back MTA births last week confirm what we always knew—public transit is the artery of New York life.

Unfortunately, some modes of transit are better than others. Exhibit A: a massive pedicab crash off the Williamsburg Bridge highlights how poorly that summertime industry is run. Exhibit B: World Naked Bikeride…is just nasty.

Finally, while there are ways to keep other people from touching you or jacking your shit in the subway, there’s little you can do to keep total creepsters from looking at you. Ewwww.

Got anymore transit oddities you just must share? Let us know in comments.
