Make the MTA Board Members Electable & Show Us The Data!
Dear Fellow Brooklynites,
It's no secret that total control has been lost when it comes to the rising toll prices that seem to be increasing every calendar year like clock work. Is this a case of formality & not necessity?
Brooklyn residents often travel to Staten Island to visit family, friends & loved ones. Some of us may even work in Staten Island. The fact that the costs to travel to and from work has become unaffordable is not acceptable.
Residents of Brooklyn need to know; Why is there yet another toll hike? It's time the MTA provide us with charts that show us where our tolls are going? By signing this petition we as a community are requesting figures of on average how many people pay the toll per day & compare that to how much is allocated towards standard maintenance or extensive restructuring. This is simple data that needs to be released to ensure people crossing the Verrazano frequently that our hard earned money is being used correctly.
We are proud to see construction going on, jobs created & the Verrazano being rehabilitated as necessary but as citizens who have to bare the costs we should be able to know what we are paying for.
