NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The man tapped to head the Metropolitan Transportation Authority wants a second look at the service cuts that have increased crowding and wait times.
And as WCBS 880’s Paul Murnane reported, some wonder if an improving bottom line for the agency might trim a coming fare hike. MTA higher-ups advised people not to get their hopes up about a fare hike alleviation, but they said the agency will revise its financial forecast this summer.
With $40 million in unexpected revenue on the table incoming MTA Chairman Thomas Prendergast has directed agency heads to look at recent service cuts. But Prendergast said a 2015 fare increase still is on the table.
