            As @MTA looks at different fare options, we're continuing our call for #FreedomTicketNow: Discounted @LIRR and @MetroNorth tickets within NYC + free transfers to @NYCTSubway @NYCTBus. Read why in our latest blog post ⬇️
            But to make sure we can continue to hold @MTA accountable, we need better transparency & a better Capital Program Dashboard. We'll continue to join @ReinventAlbany @Tri_State @RidersAlliance & other advocates in calling for better resiliency, open data & a 20-yr needs assessment!
