On the steps of City Hall, we joined the Community Service Society (CSS) for a big announcement: 28 New York City Council Members and 29 advocacy organizations have joined our push for half-priced MetroCards for low-income New Yorkers (#FairFares)! See our letter to Mayor de Blasio.
They’re not alone: according to a new poll from CSS, 73% of New Yorkers want to see #FairFares and 62% would be more likely to vote for a mayoral candidate that backs this proposal. Check out our press coverage in the Daily News, amNY, NY1, El Diario, Dnainfo, Streetsblog, and more!
Not surprised that #FairFares is gaining momentum? Neither are we. But it’s up to you to make sure the Mayor gets our message and backs #FairFares in 2017.
