Student MetroCards saved from the chopping block

Students keep discounted bus and subway fares
Together, we stopped the MTA’s plan that would have:

checkmark
Made families pay up to $1,000 per student, per year just to get their kids to school
checkmark
Hurt the half million students who now get free or discounted rides by charging them half fare in September 2010 and full fare in September 2011



Assemblywoman Arroyo helped stop the MTA’s proposal that would have taken away the student MetroCard discount.
