‘Bunch of Rich Scumbags’ Officially Raise Subway Fares


Starting December 30, a monthly MetroCard will cost $104, up from $89 now, and a single fare will go from $2.25 to $2.50. There will also be a $1 fee for buying a new MetroCard. At the board meeting this morning, one rider asked how the MTA “could sleep at night,” while another called the MTA board a “bunch of rich scumbags.” [NYP, NY1]
