Students meet with MTA head over MetroCardsPosted: Updated:
Dozens of New York City high school students met with the chairman of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority Wednesday to criticize the plan to cut student MetroCards.
The students voiced their concerns about the proposal, which they say could cause some of their peers to drop out of school if they can't afford their transportation.
Chairman Jay Walder says he doesn't support cutting student MetroCards, but the MTA may need to in order to help plug the $800 million gap.
Though the possibility of cutting student cards remains, Walder did agree to postpone the vote until June.
