Fare Hike Gripes
March 2nd, 2008

Today, New Yorkers began paying more to ride buses, subways and trains, and of course, the Internet is ripe with gripes (and advice) about the transit fare hikes and toll increases.

City Room explains all of the detailsfor those are still confused,including why a 10-ride card costs $17.39.

SecondAvenueSagas.com warns those people who thought they could beat the increase by stockpiling MetroCards.

The Daily News opinion page tells local politicians how to stop future subway fare hikes: trim the long list of new projects and institute congestion pricing.

And aNew York Post article suggests that new bridge and tunnel tolls are going to higher salaries for Port Authority employees.
