Nassau taking us for $100M ride - MTA

Adding to the MTA's budget woes, Nassau County has stiffed the authority out of more than $100 million for bus and railroad service, transit officials say.


The Metropolitan Transportation Authority - which says a fiscal crisis may force it to raise fares again next year - contends Nassau hasn't lived up to financial agreements.


State Controller Thomas DiNapoli, meanwhile, released a report Thursday showing the MTA spent $1.1 billion on personal-injury and property claims filed by workers, riders and motorists over a 10-year period.
