Recommended Posts

I just wanted to let everybody know that the fare hike hearings will be taking place the week of September 16th.

 

The locations and times of the hearings are available at: http://www.mta.info/mta/2011_farehearing_locations.html

 

You can register to speak at: http://www.mta.info/hearings/access.html

 

For more information, see: http://www.mta.info/mta/fare_toll_changes.html

 

This is not a thread to discuss the fare hikes-just an informational thread.

Thanks but the public imput is an exercise in futility.

 

MTA will do what the want in the end.

 

Hypocritical politicians (or their reps) will blast any fare hike yet will not raise subsidy levels.

This time, the public input will be listened to, because there are so many proposals out there, and the MTA board will have to vote whether to enact the capped one or not.

 

Like the service cuts, they might also rescind some elements that don't save that much money for the inconvenience.

 

2 proposals I oppose: commuter rail ticket validity period reductions, and the 25-cent SingleRide ticket surcharge (unless they increase the validity period to 24 hours).

Whats the point?The MTA board are bunch of Robots that are program to agree to Rising fares.

They don't represent the people of NYC since they take there cars from NJ OR LI to work.

 

But I cant' blame them since Albany is to busy with there overspending.

I realize that this is futile, but like Amtrak7 said, there are a couple of options available to raise the fares. I just figured that there would be some people who would want to testify. I'm going just to say that they should consider peak/off-peak charges, and that they shouldn't eliminate that system on the commuter railroads.
