Governor Hochul Defends MTA Fare Hikes, Congestion Pricing

Governor Kathy Hochul says New York City can’t function with out a highly functioning MTA.

“The success of the MTA is not negotiable. It has to happen,” Hochul said.

Hochul is standing behind proposed MTA fare hikes and the controversial congestion pricing plan. Under a proposal, the base fare to ride the subway and bus would be $2.90.Congestion pricing would charge drivers as much as $23 to travel south of 60th Street.

“I feel we have unlimited possibilities to continue the customer experience, to invest, to make sure that we do everything we can. And I'm going to make sure that we do this so every single person has the world class experience they're entitled to,” Hochul said.
