MTA Announces "F U Commuters" Budget Plan

The MTA is even more broke than you are, unless you owe your creditors $1.2 billion. This is nothing but bad news, and will result in 1 train a morning ferrying 10 million unemployeed bums from Brooklyn to Manhattan, so if you want in get there early. Also, having the pleasure of being crushed by an angry mob like a common Walmart stock-person will cost you $1 million. Today, the NY Times is reporting that:

If the authority does not receive new sources of revenue, it seems likely that the base subway fare could rise to at least $2.50, from $2, starting in June. A monthly unlimited-ride MetroCard could rise to more than $100, from $81.

Ah, hell!
