The editorial cartoons of Matt Davies

Taking a Hike.


Okay, I confess, this cartoon is bordering on unvarnished populism, as the rising maintenance costs of a vast Metropolitan public transportation system plus its bridges and tunnels ARE a genuine problem for the MTA. It’s just that it seems the only solution that the MTA board ever visualizes is hiking fares and tolls every single year, without fail. Now that the economy is in the tank, they seem to not understand that most of their riders are also facing their own personal budgetary issues. Perhaps the strategy is to drive people away from public transportation in order to reduce maintenance costs?
