But wait assessment performance is also getting worse, according to the audit:
"MTA indicates that wait assessment is its critical indicator, yet wait assessment has also been on the decline," the audit said. "Actual wait assessment was 80.3% for 2013 and 78.8% for 2014. For 2014, wait assessment was as low as 67.4% on the number 5 [train] and 69.6% on the A train."
That's all to say: the subway sucks just a little bit more now than it did last year. State auditors criticized the MTA for allegedly failing to provide solutions, and the comptroller is calling for a plan and to provide monthly progress updates.
Oh yeah, this all comes despite that nice fare increase this year. Hooray public transportation!
