The Smiths are the NYCT Subway’s favorite band
Straphangers are always asking the the MTA questions via their @NYCTsubway Twitter account but on Thursday (3/29), NYC Transit Authority head Andy Byford (who was brought in in January from Toronto Transit Commission), and Sarah Meyer held an official
#AskNYCT chat. Most people asked questions about the L Train shutdown, or rumors that the subway might not go 24/7 anmore, but NYC Councilman (and Indecision guitarist) Justin Brannon thought to ask "What's your favorite Smiths song?" To which @NYCTSubway replied, "Great question, Justin! Thank you for your service. The Smiths are my favorite band. I love There's a Light That Never Goes Out, Panic, and This Charming Man." Specifically it was Byford who replied, but its still funny to think that The Smiths could be the NYC Subway's favorite band.
Here's the original Tweet and a few other more pertinent Subway questions:
