My daily commute gives me a chance to look at the SRT in all its glory. Lately, I have noticed that there is either an explosive growth in scratchitti on SRT cars, or that the TTC has simply stopped replacing the glass.
I can’t remember the last time I was on a car that had none at all, and things have now developed to the point where there are layers with one tagger overwriting another. This problem is also starting to show up on the subway and in some stations.
The TTC embarked on a station cleanliness program last year and it has shown some results (with notable exceptions), but my sense is that scratchitti is getting out of hand.
I would be interested in hearing reports from other parts of the system. This sort of problem is symptomatic of an organization that may have given up trying, and the real worry is what other invisible maintenance is also left for another day.
