Let's split a cab. It'll be cheaper. NOT.

When they raised the subway fare from $2.00 to $2.25 in June, splitting a cab became a slightly better deal.

Starting today, the base cab fare increased from $2.50 to $3.00. NOT OK.

At the rate this is going, Poor College Student soon may not be able to afford the subway nor the cab and will start walking everywhere. At least that will save on gym memberships.


  1. cry me a river. we went out last night and the driver got shit faced drunk, got in the car and left..leaving us downtown, 30 miles from home at 4 am

    I negotiated with a cab driver for $45.. made an expensive night

  2. But you are admitting you are a student that can afford gym membership!?!? I dont mean to bring about a downer, but it doesnt get any better post-studies, you still have to pay off all your debts for a while too!

  3. Wow you have a gym membership. It's better to walk than taking a cab. Walking is an exercise too.
