BEST WAY TO MAYBE MAKE THE SUBWAYS GREEN
If you've flown through San Francisco Airport recently, you may have noticed stands near your gate selling carbon offsets for travelers wary of their flight's environmental footprint. Well, the MTA is contemplating a somewhat similar plan to help finance the greening of New York's public transportation systems. According to a proposed plan, every time you refill your Metrocard, buy a ticket, pay a toll or what-have-you, the vending machine will ask whether you'd like to donate money that will be used exclusively to help fund the MTA's environmental projects. No word yet on whether said donations will be tax-deductible.
