            We testified to the Assembly Public Auth. Committee on @MTA Capital Program to say that riders need infrastructure upgrades & long-term operating funds for better service. Thanks @AmyPaulin @Bobby4Brooklyn @NYSA_Majority for listening!🚇🚌 Our testimony:
            And don't forget, changing the #FairFares program eligibility to use the NYC poverty level which is more than twice the federal poverty level! The cost of living is far higher in NYC, so #FairFares should reflect that.
            Other systems like @SEPTA @cta @MBTA & more are already turning to reduced fares to incentivize ridership! It's time for @MTA to follow suit with #FreedomTicketNow or a 20-trip @LIRR @MetroNorth ticket.
