It's a good business strategy to increase prices while trips are thriving, but is it good for students? Personally attending a private school, I think that the school should be responsible for monthly metro cards. A year of subways equates to $1,368, and for those who commute by other sources (such as a train or bus) their monthly fees are even higher.
With just one day left of the "big soda ban" a judge puts kibosh on plan. A state Supreme Court justice struck down the mayor's plan yesterday (a day before the department of health was set to put it into action).
The judge wrote in his 37 page decision that "The rule would not only violate the separation of powers doctrine, it would eviscerate it". The plaintiffs called the decision a "win for city businesses" who claim that they would have lost millions of dollars from the plan. "The court ruling provides a sigh of relief to New Yorkers and thousands of small businesses in New York City that would have been harmed by this arbitrary and unpopular ban" said a spokesman for the American Beverage Association.
