We’re Thrilled that Fare Hikes are Off the Table

Happy new year! It’s already been quite a year and we’re only three weeks in. I’d like to note that I’m delivering these remarks on Tuesday for Thursday’s Board meeting. A lot is slated for the intervening days – including the Governor’s budget release and the inauguration – and some of our comments may no longer be relevant on Thursday. We look forward to meeting in person again and presenting our testimony on the actual meeting dates, including for Committee Meetings.

But we’re not at that point. COVID-19 remains a real threat to our health and our economy. We salute transit workers who continue to move New York and are glad they’re eligible for vaccines. But until the rest of the population is, the 2021 new normal looks an awful lot like most of 2020.
