Today’s news:

Fare increase unfair to commuters

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority has increased fares on subways and city buses to $2.25, citing its ever-increasing deficit. Was it not too long ago the MTA had a huge budget surplusi What happened to all that moneyi Did it suddenly disappeari

Perhaps it was used to help fatten the already-high salaries of the MTA Executive Board members. It is outrageous the people of New York City and the surrounding suburbs are being asked again to foot the bill.

There should be an investigation as to where all the MTA’s surplus money went. Also, the MTA needs to improve service on all its mass transit lines. As the commuting public, we deserve and demand substantial improvements in our service.
