private firms nearly went broke once running the subways
Reader comment on: Privatize the New York Subway

The subways were build privately in the first case but were teetering on the edge of bankruptcy when the city took over. I suspect that unless you raised the fares to the point where few could afford them the private operators would soon be teetering on the brink of receivership again.
