MTA Boss Says No Fare Hike In 2010


If Jay Walder, the head of the MTA, is to be trusted, subway fares will not increase next year. This despite the State Legislature cutting $140 million from the MTA’s already depleted budget yesterday. Of course, this is the MTA so a 2010 with no fare increase will be followed by a 2011 with a 7.5 percent fare hike. Better start saving for a bike. [City Room/NYT]
