Court upholds N.Y. MTA transit fare increase

Posted on July 16, 2003

The New York City Metropolitan Transportation Authority had a legal right to raise fares this year, a state appeals court ruled Tuesday. The Appellate Division ruled 5 to 0 that the agency gave as much notice as required by law, reported the Associated Press. Two commuter groups, which had asked the courts to roll back the fare and toll hikes, were told by the appeals court to take their case to the state legislature if they believed those requirements should be changed. The decision reverses rulings by two lower courts, which said the fares should be rolled back. The rollbacks were put on hold while the transit agency appealed, said the AP. The Straphangers Campaign and the Automobile Club of New York, commuter groups protesting the hikes, plan to appeal the decision. In May, subway and bus fares increased from $1.50 to $2, while toll increases ranged from 25 cents to $1.
