When Fares Were Fair

sked2With our elected leaders seeing fit to expand the amount of pay we can deduct for transit expenses, I was poking around the Metro-North site, finding out precisely how much I cough up for my monthly ticket.

Well, that apparently depends on which page I access on the Metro-North site.

According to this one, we Zone 5′ers, including commuters out of Tarrytown, Ossining, Chappaqua and Hawthorne, pay $266 a month.

But I have to say–I like this one better, where the Zone 5 peeps pay a mere $163 a month.

With Metro-North is playing up its 30 year anniversary this month, I can’t help but wonder what year it was where a monthly ticket out of Hawthorne cost just $163.

1998? ’99? Earlier?

    Holy crapzilla that must be old! $257 for Wassaic? Wassaic monthly is pushing $500 now! Their website really needs an overhaul… so many errors, out of date info, etc. If only they’d hire me…

    (btw it can’t be older than 2000, that is when Wassaic station opened)
