By expanding and improving City Ticket through this Proof of Concept, benefits can be realized immediately by riders, the City, and the MTA.
- Riders: Reduces travel times for thousands of Southeast Queens riders by up to 45%
- City: Provides fast, affordable access to outer borough neighborhoods
- MTA: Converts thousands of non-income producing seats into revenue-producing seats
By funding Freedom Ticket in their localities, local governments have the opportunity to provide reduced fares and travel times for their commuters traveling from MTA railroad stations.
