City Bills MTA For Nearly $12 Million In Services

The city charged the Metropolitan Transportation Authority nearly $12 million last year for municipal services, the Daily News reported this morning.

The Department of Citywide Administrative Services confirmed that the charges include about $4.5 million in civil service work.

The News reported that the MTA also owed $3.5 million for police to help nab fare-beaters.

This news comes days after the MTA voted to charge city agencies to cross bridges and tunnels.

Gene Russianoff of the Straphangers Campaign told the paper the city is setting a double standard by asking for free rides, while billing the MTA for basic services.
