Statement from New York City Transit Interim President Sarah Feinberg:

New York City Transit Interim President Sarah Feinberg issued the following statement on the City's decision to defund the Fair Fares program.

'The Mayor's decision to slash the Fair Fares program will make it more difficult for tens of thousands of customers who rely on mass transit to afford to get to jobs, school and work as New York continues to reopen. At a time when the MTA is hemorrhaging money at record levels due to the COVID-19 crisis, this cut sets us back and will further hurt our ability to provide critical services to New Yorkers.'
