metro in USa in general are deceiving.

Look so 70's wheras we are in 21st century.

I hope nothing great in public transports in USA because they don't really care as good europeans or asians could.

It's a reality

Compare with Paris , Barcelona, Shangai and you 'll understand

The trolling Frenchman. Let's just ignore his unintelligible rants. He's doing the same thing on the Moscow metro thread, attacking the rolling stock. Why he has chosen to take on two of the world's greatest metros on this point, I don't know. Maybe some inferiority complex.

^ The the project you're probably thinking of is CBTC installation (Siemens was the contractor). The project is basically complete - all that remains is the removal of the old wayside signals.

Love it when transit authorities get into the Christmas spirit too. My local transit authority decorates its buses over Christmas.

The CBTC failed a few days ago and half the blame can be placed on Alstom which has a history of issues in there products in North America.

" ... Born: 1930 to 1947
80 to 63 years old"

What happened to the authority's records, I thought this crummy grade of heritage documentation was limited to Canada over here?
