Group advocates 'freedom ticket'

 

A "freedom ticket" that would work on commuter trains and subways could make travel in the metro area seamless and more affordable, a riders' advocacy group said yesterday.

 

The ticket would especially help commuters in southeast Queens, the group said.

They don't make enough to afford the LIRR rates, they say. We have the same scenario here in Westchester w/ MNRR. Most people in Southwest Yonkers (mostly Ludlow and Yonkers Main) can't afford a MNRR ticket. So they take the Bee-Line to the subway, now only $2.

 

There is a reason for this................... To keep off undesirables. There I said it.

That's why I say that all local service in Westchester should be on equal fare with that in New York City. With all the ex-Bronxites that now live in southern Westchester and all, it's not nearly as affluent an area as it was, say, 20 years ago.

Well Metro-North usually caters to those in Central to Northern Westchester, where the more affluent live. As for the Bee-Line fares, they are the same as NYCTA as long as you use Metrocard. The transfers are free too, between both agency subways and buses.
