    Think the subways are jammed now? Better hope the MTA doesn't implement its "doomsday budget."

    The Metropolitan Transportation Authority has announced improvements to its e-mail and text message system that alerts  commuters to subway, bus or commuter rail service disruptions.  

    The MTA on Tuesday says commuters can now update their accounts to receive only the information they want.

    Previously, commuters who had requested only planned service changes had also received additional, unwanted alerts on unexpected service delays or disruptions.
    The MTA also says its 70,000 subscribers can suspend the alert service while away or on vacation.
