This Week in Run-on Sentences

The MTA are masters of the run-on sentence. For example:

ThisisTimesSquaretransferisavailabletothe1237ACEN RandWtrainsandtheshuttletoGrandCentralthisisaBrooklyn-bound
Qtrainthenextstopis34thStreetstandclearoftheclosingdoorsplease.

But it’s not just auditory run-on sentences. In print, the MTA doesn’t believe in things like “punctuation” or “independent clauses,” either.

A little comma would go a long way, too.
