Yeah I got stuck on the crazy lines back from Dumbo a few times before and will never do that again, taking a citi bike is a great alternative.

The subsidies are bad but it's a net positive for the city and I'm sure a fare hike wouldn't hurt it too much.

I used to take an empty bus (in heavy traffic) down Metropolitan ave from Kew Gardens to Bushwick before and it really convinced me that the city should consider getting rid of the fares, at least on busses in the outer boroughs. The amount they spent to install the new select bus service ticket machines must have been insane, and now they're spending $250 million to clamp down on fare evasion.
