No Fare!

I had a rude awakening this morning when I picked up today's AM New York and read about the latest MTA fare hike! My monthly MetroCard is going p to $81.00 a month. There were no signs alerting straphangers who use my Prospect Park station...I don't have time to watch the news on TV and I don't read the paper, so if I hadn't gone to the bank before work, I would not have gotten the paper. They did send out a new TransitCheck form at work, so would have found out that way, if nothing else.

The MTA always seems to be doing major construction during the weekend. I wanted to go into Manhattan tomorrow, but I saw a sign about this weekend's construction and decided against it: I would have to take two trains and a shuttle bus...No thanks! I'll stay in Brooklyn, get some errands done and go see a movie instead.

It seems like they just raised the subway fare recently...The F train is almost always over crowed. Starting the day with someone's elbow wedged against my hip isn't very fun...
