Reason being that the NYC subway system is pretty notorious for having slowdowns. When you are working, it's not a big deal, since you can just stay a bit extra to make-up for it. It's a different ball-game with class, however.
Idk, my commutes have been pretty consistent. Most of the delays I encounter are short "train is being held by the dispatcher" deals, those are pretty manageable. I guess it depends on the particulars. I live off of the 7; when I get to the Main St station I'm in Manhattan 30 minutes later reliably. If I miss a train, another one leaves a in a few minutes, and the line is two tracks in each direction, so even if a train stalls on the tracks ahead of us, I'm not going to be stranded on the tracks for an hour. On the other hand, trying to catch the G train at 3 AM = NIGHTMARES
Anyone planning on biking? I think that's what I'm doing.
