It may be that, as your headline put it, some “T riders prove happier” if they know the time of their train’s arrival (Page A1, Jan. 23). As a 30-year rider of the Green Line, I would like to propose several other modest ideas that would make a lot of sense for most T riders, particularly those who take public transit during rush hour:
1. Open all the doors to let passengers in and out efficiently.
2. Put enough cars on the train so that all the riders who have been waiting a long time can actually get on the train.
3. Figure out a way to collect fares from all riders.
4. Stop the trains from crashing into one another.
5. Eliminate fires in the subway before they start.
I am confident that the spirits of all Green Line riders would soar if the T’s management took action on these priorities.
