The MTA has announced that fares are going to increase on all mass transit, bridges, tunnels and commuter railroads by next year. This is totally outrageous.

The public has enough to worry about due to the very bad economy, and now yet another unnecessary and unfair burden is going to be placed upon them. Perhaps the executives of the MTA should volunteer to take a substantial cut in their already overbloated and uncalled for salaries.

The commuters of this city are fed up with these constant fare increases — the service does not improve with each one, rather it seems to worsen significantly. People are going to have to lay out more money just to commute back and forth from work, which is not fair at all. Why can’t the state and federal governments help out the MTA?
