They're thinking of hiking the fares to $3.00. Still cheap compared to other people's subway systems, and still so much better than any other means of transportation, but another buck?
The reason I bring this up is that this morning I was trapped on the train for at least a freakin hour. There was a stalled train ahead of us and we all had to walk to the front of the train to be able to get off the train. Of course I was at the back of the train so it took some time to walk to the front. By the time I got there and was considering where to transfer (2,3 to 14th? 4,5 to where?) it was just a few more minutes until the train ahead of us moved. Then it was one of those painfully slow rides through the tunnels to work.
So yeah, $3,00?
