RIDERS & TRANSIT WORKERS TO PROTEST IMPENDING FARE HIKES & SERVICE CUTS IN NYC

RIDERS & TRANSIT WORKERS TO PROTEST IMPENDING FARE HIKES &
SERVICE CUTS

9 AM IN FRONT OF MTA HEADQUARTERS
347 MADISON BETWEEN 44TH AND 45TH STREETS

Riders, transit workers and students will rally outside
the MTA this morning at 9 AM to oppose the outrageous fare
hikes and service cuts being forced on riders by the
transit agency's non-elected board.

"With the trillions of dollars being funneled to banks,
there is no way riders should be forced to pay more in
fares or tolls, or be forced to endure service
disruptions," said Tony Murphy, an organizer with the Bail
Out the People Movement, which is organizing a national
march on Wall Street next Friday to demand a jobs program.

"The MTA's budget deficit is owed to the banks, which
means the fare hikes are just more bailout money for Wall
Street -- but this time it's being taken from our
MetroCard instead of our tax money."
