Swipe Back – Protest 2013 MTA Fare Hike

Screen Shot 2013-02-28 at 4.58.26 PM

To protest the latest round of MTA fare increases, the group NoFareHikes is encouraging subway riders to stick it to the MTA by Swipe Back to other riders. (Think Pay It Forward but with Metrocards) If you have an unlimited card, it’s perfectly legal (for now) to swipe someone through the turnstile.

Not sure how depriving the MTA of funds (ie: Swipe Back) helps them out of the budget crisis, but maybe it sends a message. Either way, a novel idea.
