“Slump” Opens up spaces at Commuter Stations

Here’s a story that I’m sure the editors at the New York Times rubbed their hands over before printing. Its truly Pulitzer material.

The Park and Ride lots at commuter stations serving the New York City transportation system are noticeably less full than in years past. The reason? People who have been laid off aren’t taking the train into the city to work. DUH

This does not, however, mean that the three to five year waiting list for parking spaces is becoming shorter. After waiting for five years for a space, the laid off commuters aren’t giving up their permits. Like rent controlled apartments they are being passed on to future generations.

Its another excellent example of the main stream media reporting the obvious.
