Job Didn’t Give You A Raise? MTA’s Got You Covered

The city just keeps getting more expensive and that includes getting around on our mass transit system. Just announced: As of March 2013, it will cost a whopping $2.50 (raised from $2.25) in order to take a ride on the G Train or any line. According to the Observer, “This is the fourth hike in five years. The motion was approved unanimously…And it may not sound like much, but a $2.50 MetroCard is 25 percent more expensive over that period, when it cost $2.”

What do you think about this fare hike? What service improvements do you expect? Will you opt for riding your bike?


About Jen G

After living in NYC my entire life, I found the strongest sense of community in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Running this blog is truly an honor and the best part is meeting its readers in real life. Everyday I am energized by smiles and inspiring conversations with fellow Greenpointers who tirelessly do and create incredible things that are good for our community and share the same love I have for life here. If you see me walking with my little dog "D" - please say hi!

    If they want to reduce car traffic in the city this is not the way to do it. Its now cheaper to drive for a lot of people than take the subway.
