It's time we speed up commuting times and reduce commuting costs between Southeast Queens and Atlantic Terminal. The New York City Transit Riders Council's (NYCTRC) proposal Freedom Ticket has resulted in the Atlantic Ticket Field Study - the first phase of the full proposal.
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.
