MTA Fare Hike (NYC)

The MTA began enacting its fourth system-wide fare hike in five years on March 3rd. Commuters will now pay an added $1 fee for every MetroCard purchased in an effort to clean up stations and save resources. Overall, the MTA has raised MetroCard rates a total of 38 percent since 2008. This week on BTR Pulse, Lauren Hawker asks people their thoughts on this latest fare hike.
