If there was an Olympic event for dumb ideas, MTA chairman and CEO Pat Foye would deserve a Gold Medal.
His proposal for a subway and bus seat reservation plan using Ticketmaster technology shows a total disconnect from reality. When full MTA service resumes, nearly five million riders will use the system as a daily necessity, not a distraction like attending a Taylor Swift concert.
If the MTA implements a seat booking program, its angry customers will shout the
lyrics to a Rolling Stones hit song: "I can't get no satisfaction."
