Charlene Perez, College of Staten Island

I am a student at the College of Staten Island. Where I live, the bus takes really long. Sometimes the bus doesn’t even stop. It’s a very common experience. I have classes on Tuesdays and the bus gets so full that they don’t even stop. I take two buses, so that bus made me late for class. I take the bus everyday to get around. Lower fares would make a huge difference, especially because they raise the price. It all adds up every day, week, and month.
