My MTA Fare Hike


By the year 2011, the MTA wants to increase fares on train, bridges and tunnels to a whopping 13.4%. As ridiculous as it sounds, people are still going to fork over the cash and pay to commute. On the plus, Mayor Michael Bloomberg is against the hike and trying to snip it with the help of his government allies. As dependent as New Yorkers are on public transportation, this is clearly taking advantage of the situation. I hope the government realizes it would only discourage New Yorker to leisure travel and it was would be a step backwards for the local economy. (NYT)
