How Could We Forget About the Old MTA?

Dear Editor:

Does anyone remember Spring 2003?

In double bombshell accusations, the New York State Comptroller and New York City Controller issued separate reports in April showing that the MTA kept two sets of books and hid $500 million over several years in order to justify the 50-cent city bus and subway fare increase.

Will the MTA get away with this type of injustice again?

I sure hope not.

Tolls on east river bridges, Great idea! Also raise price of Metro North, and the LIRR. Most folks who utilize these trains are commuters who live in places that don’t have to pay NYC taxes!

Maybe these changes will put off the fare hike for a year or so...

I’ll take it.

Sincerely,

Vic Frederickson

Brooklyn
