MTA considers cutting Bronx service and eliminating reduced fares to save money

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) has confirmed they are considering making some significant changes in order to fill its million-dollar budget gap. Bronx residents believe, however, that none of those changes seem to benefit commuters.

Some of the options the MTA is considering include cutting service during the evening and overnight hours and eradicating the reduced-fare MetroCards. For a commuter-driven borough such as the Bronx, these changes have angered some residents.

The Straphangers Campaign transportation advocacy group reports that the MTA has only speculated these changes. The MTA plans to hold a board meeting on July 29th to discuss any possible changes.
