I, among many commuters, feel we deserve better than what the LIRR is giving us. We are paying for top-dollar service and receiving below-par service. We pay and we pay, and get nothing.
If you have been reading the papers you will see that the LIRR has been “experiencing delays or cancellations” due to a “third rail broken in the East River tunnel, because of Amtrak, signal problems or disabled trains” or a combination of the three. As such, I have contacted the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) to investigate these matters. As an attorney general you have the ability to audit this agency and I kindly request you do so. The public needs to know where the money is going and hold them accountable. For anyone who wished to make a complaint against the LIRR for their service, or lack thereof, contact the Federal Railroad Administration by visiting their website www.fra.dot.gov
