Question: How do you feel about a possible MTA fare hike?



It’s unnecessary. The MTA is not thinking about commuters. They keep on raising the tolls, but where are the improvements? The subways aren’t faster or cleaner; they have modernized the interior of some trains but the subway platforms are old, moldy and dirty. The fare hike is too costly and for many people it’s unaffordable. The MTA has enough money; they owe us some proof as to where all this money is going.

It’s bad enough the service is poor; we certainly don’t need another fare hike. When the MTA needs money for certain projects, all of a sudden they have the resources despite claiming a deficit. Where’s all the money going?

– David Izhak, warehouse manager 






It’s wrong. Just because the MTA claims to have a deficit doesn’t mean that we as commuters should be responsible for fixing it. Obviously the money is not being properly disbursed because it seems like every year or so they cry poverty. Unfortunately, commuters have no choice and are going to have to shell out more money.

If they want to raise the fare they should also step up and improve the service by adding more workers. I work in Midtown, and it seems like I have to wait forever for the B train to show up. We need more trains on the track and more staff on the premises. The MTA has enough money.
