Dear MTA,

Today it was 100 degrees outside. I was so excited to get on the D train and potentially get a seat. I had my two children with me in the double stroller. As the doors opened, I got ready to embrace the air conditioned subway car. I was excited, even though it was rush hour.

To my dismay, the subway car was crowded and hot. There was no air conditioning. I was devastated and dripping with sweat.

I don’t believe it’s too much to ask for the subway to be air conditioned when it’s 100 degrees outside. I understand that shit happens and things break. I get it. The air conditioning was probably broken on that car.

The thing is, we’re all paying $2.50 per ride. A ride on the train should be comfortable at the very least. I don’t want to feel tortured while I’m waiting to arrive at my destination. I’m already cranky. I just want to go home.

Please fix the air conditioning on the broken cars.
