MTA Metro Card Price Hike

The MTA just announced that the price of the monthly unlimited Metro Card is going from $76 to $81. Let Mr NYC help you with the annual economics of this:

$81 x 12 = $972

$76 x 12 = $912

$972 - $912 = $60

So it's gonna cost us monthly unlimited riders an extra $60 a year - $60 we might otherwise spend on ourselves or those we love (or would like to love).

The regular fare for a single ride will remain at $2 so us NYC residents will basically be subsidizing the tourists.

Welcome to NYC 2008. Egads.

  1. For the record, Mr. Missouri is completely in favor of Mr. NYC subsidizing his occasional forays into the big bad city. (Also, it was nice seeing you a few weeks back, and the Woody playing pool thing is hilarious).


Please keep it civil, intelligent, and expletive-free. Otherwise, opine away.
