As part of our big package on the worst subway lines in New York City—where we sounded off on the most terrible trains in town—we’re wondering what you, dear readers, think. Is the R train ridiculously slow? Is the L crowded as hell? Do the constant service changes on the G make you want to pull your hair out? (If they do, don’t tell senior editor Amy Plitt, a staunch G-train defender.)

What do you think? Tell us below!

It seems like this poll just matches the audience of TONY. Lots of Brooklyn hipsters that use the G, not many Flushing residents that use the 7, etc. In order for this poll be of any accuracy and interest, you need to ask which trains people ride regularly, and then adjust the "worst" poll results proportionally. The results as they are are just useless.
