Arthur Leahy (Art), Chief Executive Officer,
- Surveys consistently show convenience is the No. 1 concern among riders. So what is MTA doing to enhance convenience of the system (i-phone apps, etc.)?
- The American Public Transportation Assn. this week projected a big jump in transit ridership if gas prices top $5 a gallon, yet MTA is cutting service. How will the system cope with the expected surge in customers?

Oceana: Our Endangered Oceans and What We Can Do to Save Them
Ted Danson has tackled roles from the lovable Sam Malone on the hit series “Cheers” to the young-at-heart but often self-reflective and wise George Christopher on the HBO series “Bored to Death.” Yet his longest-lasting role is real-life environmentalist—one especially concerned with the real and pressing dangers facing the world’s oceanic biosystem. The book he wrote, Oceana, is part biography, part cautionary tale, and part chronicle of the damage we have done to Earth’s oceans. Will Danson tell us that we’re too late?
