A Fighting Chance for Fair Fares

Sometimes an issue is so big, so obvious, so logical, that we as New Yorkers just can’t stay quiet. For us, that issue is Fair Fares. Two of the leaders of the movement to give half-price Metrocards to low income New Yorkers are here with us: Nancy Rankin of the Community Service Society and Rebecca Bailin of the Riders alliance. We look at the issue of mass transit affordability from all angles – political, socio-economic, criminal justice and more.
