  1. Why are they taking away the students passes which doesn’t really add much to the total cost of runung the busses or trains or cuting into the profit of the MTA unless these students will be starting paying car fare instead of walking or switching to closer schools.
    They need to do away or check the people who use “Access a Ride” . People that can walk very well or can take a car service for a couple of dollars use these services which must cost a fortune for the MTA or some other agency.
    It is like the Medicaid subsidised “Ambulette Service” which is used by people who can walk perfectly but get pre-approvals and the city pays big bucks for them to go to clinics.

  2. Mr. Greenfield- I admire your strong work ethic….You genuinely put the work of the Klal as first priority and never take a vacation. But I am positive that the Klal will give you a pass-Take a day off! Spend a day with your kids on Chanukah! A family man is extremely admirable too!
    P.S. Love the show!

  3. If people using access a ride can walk, why can’t the yeshivah bachurim also walk, or ride bikes?

    All students (not just yeshivah bachurim)in the city add up to tens of thousands (if not many more).

    At over $2.50 per ride per day, plus a ride back at the end of the day, that ads up to quite a lot.
