On Christmas Eve, I posted the link to the MTA’s .pdf which oultlined the proposed fare & service changes along with the schedule for public hearings. As a reminder, today is the first scheduled hearing. The MTA sent out a press release via e-mail yesterday afternoon to serve as a reminder:
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) tomorrow will hold the first of eight public hearings on fare increases and service reductions that would take effect in the coming months.
WHO: Members of the public, elected officials, MTA Board Members and executive staff
WHAT: Members of the public and elected officials will be given an opportunity to offer their views on fare increases and service reductions.
WHEN: Tomorrow, Wednesday, January 14, 2009 – 6 p.m.
WHERE: Hilton New York – Trianon Ballroom; 1335 Avenue of the Americas (between 53rd & 54th Streets), Manhattan (B, D or E to Seventh Av./53rd St.; F or V to 47-50th Sts.-Rockefeller Center; M5, M6 or M7 to 53rd Street)
I hope everyone takes the time to attend at least one of the hearings. We all need our voices heard!
