Best public transportation disappointment (2008)

AIRTRAIN

Remember how it used to totally suck to get to JFK Airport? Once, you had to take a subway alllllll the way to Howard Beach, and then hop a free bus to the terminal. But thanks to the new $1.9 billion AIRTRAIN that opened this year, now all that is required is to take a subway allllll the way to Howard Beach, and then pay $5 to take a train to the terminal.
