Re: Doubling the subway fare in 1948

While I understand the concept that mass transit benefits everyone, even those who don't actually use it themselves, 25% from the fare box is pathetic. There is also lots to be said for the assertion that those who directly benefit from a service should be the ones who pay at least a good portion of the cost-- and not everyone who uses mass transit is dirt poor. We could certainly do lots more for transit if the fare were more realistic in terms of supporting the system.
