Ercelle Speck, of Shore Front Parkway, is recently retired and looking for part-time work in Manhattan. She said she currently pays 75 cents, because as a senior she qualifies for a reduced fare, and is curious if her fare will also go up. Although the MTA does not directly address that question on its website, www.mta.info.org the reduced fare policy is described as "half fare." Speck said the increase won't discourage her from seeking work that she has to use mass transit to get to but said, "I think it's a hardship for everyone."031p2_lg.jpg
