As it stands unless Albany steps in, MTA will raise fares and this would effect anyone coming and going to Beacon via train esp. commuters.
The price would be according to one report 30 % increasing which is another 50.oo added to a monthy pass. I'm sure to some this would be a push to do more work from home or join coworkers group, but not all can do that. There are families who are struggling and can't do another 50.00.
Also I wonder if this could have an effect on people moving here. People have complained about the price of commuting. I know there is a give and take. Also fear this would force people to drive.
Call your Senator and ask for a better plan.
