It is official! New York City raised the rates to ride the subway and they will be cutting back on weekend/late night service. So let me get this right….We will pay more for shittier service? FUCK YOU NEW YORK CITY OFFICIALS! Single rides are now $2.50 from $2.00 with monthly passes and bridge and tunnel shit increasing as well. Fifty cents may not seem like a lot but it adds up quickly when you take it on the regular.
“Norman Siegel, a onetime candidate for the city√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s public advocate and longtime civil liberties lawyer, tried to portray the board as out of touch, asking the board, √¢‚Ç¨≈ìI am curious how many of you use the trains or buses regularly?√¢‚Ç¨¬ù
When only some raised their hands, he said, √¢‚Ç¨≈ìI hope that one day everyone here raises their hand.√¢‚Ç¨¬ù He added, √¢‚Ç¨≈ìYou clearly don√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t represent the diversity of the city or the state.√¢‚Ç¨¬ù” (NY Times)
