MTA to Riders: Never Mind

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority has postponed a $30 million package of service improvements that it had promised to riders as a way to sweeten the pill of a fare increase, which went into effect at the beginning of this month.

The MTA taketh away, and the MTA taketh away. Last month, it was our money, in the form of a fare hike. This month, its the service improvements that were promised when they announced the fare hike. This includes improvements to service on the G line.

Its hard to express a complete and utter lack of surprise in a blog post.
