Parliamentary Maneuver Could Lead to Higher Muni Fares — And Soon

Friday's fingernails-on-the-chalkboard pleasant Muni Board Meeting ended with the specter of monthly fares being doubled for children, the disabled, and the elderly being staved off. Everyone exhaled a sigh of relief.

Well, inhale a breath of trepidation — because tomorrow the MTA Board could reverse course and vote for rate hikes going into effect as early as April.

As others noticed, Friday's board meeting was never “adjourned.” It was only “recessed.” The difference could end up costing vulnerable riders, and right soon.
