This Week: MTA Transit and Toll Hike Hearings

Posted By Streetsblog On November 12, 2012 @ 10:57 am In Livable Streets Events | 2 Comments

With the transit disruptions wrought by Sandy fresh on the minds of New Yorkers, this week’s calendar is full of hearings on proposed MTA transit and toll hikes. Also: TA recruits for community boards, and work continues in Brooklyn for a safer Fourth Avenue.

  • Tuesday: Ahead of an MTA transit and toll hike hearing at the Baruch College Performing Arts Center, Transportation Alternatives will host the “People’s Fare Hike Hearing [1],” where advocates and elected officials will “discuss the need for our state government to invest in transit instead.” 4 p.m.
  • Tuesday: The MTA holds its Manhattan transit and toll hike hearing [2], at Baruch College. 5 to 9 p.m.
  • Tuesday: The MTA’s Bronx transit and toll hike hearing [3] will be held at Hostos Community College. 5 to 9 p.m.
  • Tuesday: When it comes to street-level transportation policy, no entity is more powerful than the community board. If you live in Manhattan and would like to be a voice of reason on your local board, you can apply on the spot at TA’s Manhattan Community Board Join Up [4]. 7 to 9 p.m. RSVP requested.
  • Wednesday: Join the NYU Rudin Center for “The Wisdom of Transportation Crowds [5],” a panel discussion about crowdsourcing, community organizing and technology to improve mobility in the New York region from the ground up. 6:30 p.m. RSVP requested.
  • Wednesday: The transportation committee of Brooklyn Community Board 10 will host a Fourth Avenue Safety Visioning Workshop [6]. 7 p.m.
  • Thursday: The MTA holds its Queens transit and toll hike hearing [7], at the Sheraton LaGuardia East Hotel. 5 to 9 p.m.
