Transit Fare Policy and the Welfare State: Findings from New York City

Perrotta, Alexis

Transit fare affordability is an issue that rarely arises in the planning literature. Because the cost of transit is favorable compared to driving a car, and because transit has been considered the mode of the poor, transit is presumably universally affordable. This research elaborates on this assumption. Findings are from interviews with planners, advocates, social workers, and low income individuals in New York City.
