hmm. it looks like the strike may go down. which normally would affect me minimally because i only ride the subway on the weekends (mostly). however, this week i am leaving the city (for winter break), and thus i will be driving out to transport my computer and all that crap... on the weekends, cars going into and out of the city must have at least 2 people. and during the week, they must have 4 people (if the strike goes down)... i don't know much about the causes for the strike, nor do i know all the logistics behind the change in road rules. however, it will certainly throw a kink in my plans if it happens. then there's the possible fare hike in the near future... the mta isn't gaining much love around here.
