The State of Subways report ranks each of the lines after assessing them against six different categories, and values them out of a total $2.25 (that's now the price of a single ride for all of you living the unlimited-ride high life). It’s a disappointing story for the D line, and a fail for the 4 and the 5 — we guess shiny new trains aren’t everything. So, which takes the biscuit? It’s Queens that wins with a capital Q!

Give us a Q, give us a U ... give us a break, or at least, some maintenance. (New York Observer)
