Grant Barrett has updated his excellent MTA

posted by Jason Kottke   Mar 03, 2005

Grant Barrett has updated his excellent MTA fare analysis document to account for the recent price hikes. If you’re a pure communter (10 uses a week), the 30-day unlimited card is no longer your best value.

Face analysis, eh?

Me thinks you mean fare.

Mr Nosuch beat me to it! I was expecting photos of people’s faces when they realised their fares had gone up.
That would be be a great idea for a website.

Argh. Fare! Fare! Guh. The typos on the site lately have been terrible. I’ll be glad when this fund drive is over and I can focus on the content.

This fare guide is phenomenal. The metrocard is still a great deal. For $1000 a year all you can ride, there’s no way to justify owning a car. If you figure in gas, tickets, time spent trying to park, I bet the cost of owning a car in New York is 4 or 5 times that of using the subway and occasionally renting a car.
