Debut of Stand Clear of the Rising Fares

Debut of _Stand Clear of the Rising Fares_

Serving over 5 million New Yorkers daily, the NYC public transit
system is the largest in North America and an essential part of city
life. Riders across the city are feeling the effects of a fare hike from
earlier this year and worrying that more are on the way. Why are fares going up?

In our latest Urban Investigation, CUP worked with Teaching Artist Christina Houle and students from five Bronx high schools—Bronx Academy for Software Engineering, Fannie Lou Hamer, Bronx International, Bronx Compass, and Bronx Collaborative—to investigate why transit costs what it does and who decides.

Students interviewed a number of stakeholders like the chief
spokesman of the MTA, the executive director of a transit advocacy
group, a New York State Assembly Member, and a community
advocate. They created a short documentary video to share what they learned.

Join us for the debut of their video at the Bronx Museum of the Arts, where students will present their work and share their creative process with the public!
