Why is it that New York City and New York State subsidize the transportation costs for NYC schools? Why is it that on Long Island and the remainder of the state student transportation costs are covered by the homeowners and landowners in their school taxes? Why can’t these subsidies be passed along in the real estate taxes of the NYC resident-the same as the remainder of NYS? Where is my subsidy?
