Dear MTA Please Fix the Air Conditioning

Dear MTA,

Today it was 100 degrees outside. I was so excited to get on the D train and potentially get a seat. I had my two children with me in the double stroller. As the doors opened, I got ready to embrace the air conditioned subway car. I was excited, even though it was rush hour.

To my dismay, the subway car was crowded and hot. There was no air conditioning. I was devastated and dripping with sweat.

I don't believe it's too much to ask for the subway to be air conditioned when it's 100 degrees outside. I understand that shit happens and things break. I get it. The air conditioning was probably broken on that car.

The thing is, we're all paying $2.50 per ride. A ride on the train should be comfortable at the very least. I don't want to feel tortured while I'm waiting to arrive at my destination. I'm already cranky. I just want to go home.

Please fix the air conditioning on the broken cars.



  1. I feel your pain! I don't know why they wouldn't just fix the unit, or, if fixing it wasn't a viable option, they could at least use someone like
    Carrier hvac to substitute a rental unit until the permanent repairs are made. I can't stand riding on the subway in this heat anymore!

  2. The air conditioner is necessary in this modern lifestyle. If you have air conditioner you did not face any problem and you can easily work whatever you want. Whether it is anyplace air conditioner is necessary. If you have to go on a long journey by train or in any vehicle there is a need of air conditioner so that your journey is comfortable and you did not face any problem. There are many srsfacilities-air conditioning companies are available if you want your home and vehicle air cool so that you will feel fresh in summer season.

  3. It's too hot for me to deal with that temperature. Im lucky enough to have my AC running good.

  4. I hate it when that happens. I make sure people that do service comes on time.

  6. Better hire some real professionals who has good reputation.

  7. Hailey, with all due respect perhaps you should direct this information to the MTA directly. I am not the one who needs to know about Carrier HVAC. I know that you're probably a robot or (if you are a person) you definitely have no read this post carefully. If you really read it, you would realize that I am complaining about Metropolitan Transit Authority's lack of air conditioning on their train cars. You can go to and contact them there. Please do not suggest air conditioning alternatives to me as I am extremely pro air conditioning. Regardless of whether or not you are a robot I hope that you have a fantastic cold air conditioned day. Cookies!

  8. I can't even stand that for a day. I make mine is already fix before it gets in the evening. Hiring professionals can be a good idea.

  9. Once again, tell this to the MTA, not me. I know and love air conditioning.

  10. I have to thank
    you for this good site .I for sure loved every little bit of it. I have you
    bookmarked your web site to look at the latest stuff you put up.
