Dear fellow New Yorkers,
The point of no return for the 25% fare hike on all NYC-region public transportation is getting closer. The MTA has already started the process of reprogramming fare machines and changing their signs and brochures.
Here's the good news. State legislators in Albany are feeling the heat and finally getting close to an alternative funding plan that would stop the massive fare increases and service cuts. [NYT, 4/21/09]
We got this far because of you - but we've got to keep the pressure on. Together, we've sent more than 10,000 messages to our legislators in Albany. If we can meet our new goal of 20,000 by the end of the week - we can win this fight.
Can you take a moment right now to send our message to five friends who ride the subways, buses, Metro-North or LIRR? Send mail using your own address book.
Thank you, Dan L.
Live your values. Love your country.
And, remember: TOGETHER, We can make a DIFFERENCE!
