MTA Fare Hike as Riders Forced to Cope with Crime, Rats
NEW YORK– The MTA in its infinite wisdom believes riders should pay more for the right to ride with the rats, the homeless, muggers, thieves and more.
The cash-strapped agency wants a four percent fare increase by 2019 and a second four percent hike in 2021.
MTA board members insist the move is due to falling revenues from decreased ridership.
However, no one appears to be addressing the issues that are leading to the reduced ridership such as crime and filthy conditions.
Maybe the MTA can ask the Pizza Rat for ideas on how to improve service.
