    You guys should sometimes actually test the applications and sites you suggest. I ran 3 very basic searches that HopStop, MTA Website, and just plain google ran fine. Yet with the one cited here, all three were so wrong and erroneous that going from Brooklyn to Manhattan was suggested that I book using Amtrak.

    Guess what, you can't go from Brooklyn to Manhattan via Amtrak.

    Really now, I actually expect a little better from MakeUseOf
