Majority of City Council Backs #FairFares!

On the steps of City Hall, we joined the Community Service Society (CSS) for a big samuelspeakingfairfareswebpageannouncement: 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.

Make sure Mayor de Blasio gets our message! Share the new video from CSS featuring Riders Alliance members and the high cost of transit for low-income New Yorkers.  Click to Tweet!
