Subway Fare Going Up To
As Much As $3
Nearly everything's going up: They'll also charge
as much as seven dollars each way to cross bridges, which really has the Staten Island Advance upset; get rid of student discounts on express buses, and change the hours on the senior citizen discount on some bus routes; hike LIRR fares (don't snort, you'll want to go to the beach again someday), etc.
Oh, and those reductions in train service we mentioned are all still on, too, as well as a bunch of reduced and eliminated bus service. There will be hearings -- the next is at the New York Hotel, January 14 at 6 p.m.; bring a police whistle and tweet your head off, for all the good it will do.
