DiNapoli Statement on Rollback of Proposed MTA Fare and Toll Increases

The MTA’s fare hike reduction is good news for commuters. In difficult economic times, any relief from rising fares and tolls will help ease the financial burden on New Yorkers.

In September, my office found the MTA’s financial outlook was significantly improved. Today’s Final Proposed 2014 Budget and Four-Year Financial Plan confirms our recommendation that the MTA look for ways to hold down costs for commuters. MTA Chairman Thomas F. Prendergast deserves credit for his leadership in finding ways to reduce the proposed increase in fares and tolls while maintaining the safety and maintenance of the system that so many New Yorkers depend on.
