Doubling the subway fare in 1948

Posted by Joe on Sat Apr 13 12:18:31 2019

Today's New York Times has a half-page article about doubling the New York subway fare on July 1, 2019. Although it quotes knowledgeable historians (Sparberg, Freeman, Derrick), it neglects the simultaneous creation of many inter-divisional free transfers which previously cost the rider another nickel. For many riders the fare remained the same, two nickels.
