PCAC staff and Council members will be at each of the hearings – it’s our job. But many New Yorkers won’t be able to miss or leave their jobs and we therefore urge that you make available as many communication channels as possible for people to weigh in. We ask that you set up video testimony booths at key MTA transit accessible locations throughout the region, and create a dedicated micro website for the proposed fare hikes, with a link to allow people to give testimony and informs stakeholders of why the fare increase is necessary. Whatever the mechanisms – and we’re happy to work with you to develop them – we urge that there be as many opportunities for input as possible.
