MTA Fare Hikes=Better Service=How Naive

metrocard.jpg
So the MTA fares are going up — once again!!! This is not a surprise.

But what IS a surprise, are the numbers of people interviewed on the street for the different news reports. I was left to wonder who are these people who went on camera to say “Well…..I would hope this [fare hike] will mean better service….” Of course, the MTA says we can look forward to more service on the dreaded L line, among its promises.

But if you have been through many fare hikes over many decades [I won’t age myself], you have to be thinking that the interviewees who think fare hikes=better service are either:
a) very young
b) recently relocated here
c) clueless
d) smoking some good stuff
or
e) all, or any combination of, the above

    You may be right but trust me – I’ve travelled a lot and the MTA offers by far the best service I ever experienced.
