The State of NY continues to betray us. The MTA says they are getting 200M less from the state than they expected, so more severe service cuts and fare hikes may be on the way. What's on the table? Eliminating bus and train service at night. NYC will no longer be the city that never sleeps. After 11pm, subways will run once an hour, and the LIRR and Metro-North will not run at all. As for LIB, who knows what could be next, $5 fares, hourly service at all times and no service nights/sundays?
Are these idiots in Albany clueless or what? They're worried about the taxes and tolls of the Ravitch Plan, yet these cuts and fare hikes will be the death knell for NYC, and we'll plunge into the 1970s once again! Have these people learned anything?
It really is time to put the FEAR OF GOD into these people. We must defend the downstate area now!
PEOPLE WILL LEAVE NY IN DROVES, INCLUDING MYSELF!
Is that what you want Craig Johnson? David Paterson (who redistributed federal stimulus money away from the MTA)? Malcom Smith...do you want to see your city in the condition it was 33 years ago?
Albany...there is NO NEW YORK without NEW YORK CITY...GET IT THROUGH YOUR THICK HEADED SKULLS OF YOURS AND DO SOMETHING!
People and businesses will leave this state, because they will no longer be able to get employees. STOP SUCKING SUV FUMES ALBANY AND WAKE UP OUT OF YOUR STUPER AND GET TO WORK.
AS FOR THE MTA BOARD WHO VOTED FOR THESE CUTS AND FARE HIKES, HOW ABOUT DOING RIGHT BY MILLIONS OF NY'ers AND STOP THIS.
The Captain of a Ship is supposed to put his crew first, and you have let your "crew" down. Mitch Palley, Dale Hemmerdinger, you should have refused to balance the budget and sacrificed yourselves. A Captain recently lost his freedom for a while for doing just that, because he didn't want his crew being harmed. THE MTA BOARD HAS NO HONOR AND NO DIGNITY
This isn't just about fare hikes and service cuts, it's about saving our city and our planet. Please, TAKE ACTION NOW, BEFORE ITS TOO LATE!
