Ugh.  Just get it over with already so we can go on with our lives realizing that this is not the end of the world.  This is a followup to SUBWAYblogger’s recent post on this subject that became quite the source of debate.
The vote to cut the program has been delayed.  However, there are a [...]

So let’s hear your thoughts on the cutting of free and reduced fares for NYC Students.
Personally, I’m torn.  I can see how it is something that students should have.  Then again, times are tough.  I think that everyone needs to chip in.  I guess I’m on both sides of the issue.
