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.
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.
