    It’s really unlikely that this money would’ve gone to transit. NYC is mind bogglingly wealthy and transit still sucks arse. They already charge crazy high tolls just to get into the city and none of that has manifested better quality of life for transit users.

    The reality is it would just make it more expensive for normal workers who keep the city running but can’t afford to actually live in the city itself, so they commute. All it does is further locks down NYC as a playground for the rich.
