Harris J. Klein, a member of the City Transit Authority, answers questions.


Panelists: Ursula Mahoney of Hunter College, Maureen O'Neill of Columbia University, Martin Birmingham of Washington Square College, and Harold Goodman of the University of Minnesota.


Questions:


Can the city retain the 15 cent fare? Negotiations with Transit Workers Union to meet budget. Closing of the 3rd Avenue El. There is no 2nd Ave Subway contemplated for 9 or 10 years; he think it will never occur. Transit Authority think there are other projects more important than a 2nd Avenue subway line. Lightbulbs. Doesn't think anyone likes subways. Insufficient Transit police officers.
