Or God help us if these aren’t scare tactics:
The Port Authority today proposed two different fare increases and fare structures and the elimination of more than half of its bus routes to help it address the biggest funding deficit in its 43-year-history.
They are proposing eliminating 123 of 213 weekday runs and cutting hundreds of jobs. Shit.
And I’m not the only one thinking this smacks of “piss everybody off so we’ll get more funding” tactics.
I think they’ve hit the “piss everybody off” nail on the head.
