Senator Martins Uncovers Unfair Practice by the MTA

New York State Senator Jack M. Martins last week uncovered an unfair practice engaged in by the MTA. Beginning December 30, in order to get a refund on a train ticket that is not used, a customer must pay a $10 “processing fee.” In many instances, the fee is more expensive than the ticket.

“I am appalled that the MTA is unwilling to give customers refunds by charging them a fee. Customers who purchase a ticket but don’t use the service should be able to get a refund on their money. It’s common sense,” said Senator Martins.

Senator Liz Krueger on the "Bike Wars" of the East Side

Bike Wars

By Allen Houston

Simmering Bike Resentment

East Siders may have grown used to delivery guys on bicycles hopping sidewalks and dangerously whizzing in and out of pedestrians as they rush to drop off Chinese food or pizza. But they seem to have finally reached a breaking point. The debate over whether to restrict bicyclists may not only be about these riders and alleged misdemeanors; rather, it could be part of a growing hostility toward the increasingly bike-friendly city that New York is becoming...
