Will Paterson’s Proposed Cuts Mean Increased Fares?

Governor Paterson has proposed more cuts for NYC.

Watch your pockets New Yorkers, because these deductions from the  budget may directly affect you. Gov. David Paterson  plans to have $113 million in cuts from the MTA. This means higher transportation rates for riders soon.  According to the New York Times fare increases are expected to reach 7.5 percent by 2011 and 2013. Paterson insists that these cuts are needed to balance out the  budget.
