    I heard that they are asking privite coorporation to buy their name instead of the fair hike. Meaning the coorporation will buy naming rights to historical stations. So Utica Ave Station may be called TRINIKIZ in the future.

    well gas prices have gone up in the pastt few years so they need to compensate for that some way...and there are some legal dollar vans too...it's just that the illegal ones outnumber them greatly...

    You juss come or wha? To put a vehicle on the road for profit you suppose to have proper documentation. So since the dollar van drivers dont have they papers that makes it illegal. Plus you no Uncle Sam dont like to lose money so the more people in dollar vans the more money they losing on MTA.

    But you ent easy you kno the dollar vans ent a dollar and you walking wid a dollar alone. They have the right to put you out! LOL. You lucky you ent in trini cause if you try dat wid dem maxi taxi drivers you sure to get chop. They does have dey cutlass under dey seat.

    Now the fair hike for everything and ever plae has not gone into affect they still r going to vote on it. It truth we all know the fair hike shall pass. I hate republicans, this shite make you want to really move out of NY cause it is too damn expensive, you have to be wealthy to live comfortable here it's ridiculous. For all the money I paying the city with my tax dollars I want to see more done. I want to see cleaner trains and streets. Gimme a free drink on my train ride hell put leather seats in it LIRR could have leather seats why can't the regular trains.

    As for gas I found a new gas shop that just open the cheapest gas is 1.99. Now if they can afford to give gas for 1.99 you know for sure that in truth gas doen't need to be as outrageous as it is.

    Lawd let me hurry up and get my degree so I could move out this blasted place .

    P.S. But I still love Brooklyn (a.k.a America lol).

    Its a ploy to get acceptance of private sponsors for the individual stations. They aren't suppose to raise it till 2007, but you know how it works.
    The mta doesn't loose money they make money, but when they give the state all profits they make then it will look like they operating at a loss.

    Yuh see me, I'm going to get one of thsoe scooters, not the annoying loud ones, just the regular ones you use your feet to move. I'm tired of paying high prices for garbage service on the MTA and I don't have luck with dollar vans at all at all. They pull off so gotdam fast I get thrown almost through the back window. And there was one dollar van driver I felt to just pull him out the driver's seat and beat him senseless...which shouldn't take long being he didn't seem to have sense to begin with. I got off a few blocks before my "stop" and walked the rest of the way yes, I couldn't take the constant whiplash.

    *Whew* I needed to get that off my chest.

    Not all dollar vans are illegal. The Brooklyn Van lines which are the green and white ones are legal along with some others. There are a lot of legal ones. You can tell which ones are legal because they have all the company information either on the side of the van or on the back window with license # and everything.
