Re: Doubling the subway fare in 1948

I canít see why the War Dept would require a person to commute home and back between jobs. In the first place, such commutation would cause an unnecessary use of fuel resources which were limited at the time. Second why would the War Dept want to know how a person went to work unless they used their personal autos and had to make use of gas rationing coupons. Third, how would the War Dept even know if anyone was commuting home between jobs or not since most local transit agencies didnít keep records of who traveled where so it would be functionally unenforceable.
