Release date: January 21, 2015

STATEMENT BY SENATOR GOLDEN ON THE MTA FARE HIKE

"The Metropolitan Transit Authority has once again misstepped in approving a plan that digs deeper into the pockets of straphangers and motorists. I am greatly disappointed by the MTA Board’s vote to increase the base fare for those who travel our subways, buses and bridges. As I said when I spoke at the Brooklyn MTA fare hearing, we are again being asked to pay more to travel throughout our City. I encourage transit riders to strongly look into the bonus and discount plans that are available so that they can get more, dollar for dollar, in transportation services.
