Re: Doubling the subway fare in 1948

no, in most cases in the US, farebox recovery is around 25% +/-
NYCT subway does much better, NY Bus not. WMATA does fairly well, Metrobus, not. And we know how both have skimped on maintenance for (how many? years which totally skews the ##. BART recently got a $3.5 billion bond issue approved to fund basic deferred maintenance and are in delivery of a new fleet replacing all of the current cars (some though GOH'd in the 90s are the originals from 72-74) over the next few years.
