    It’s not fare. The price of a ride on city subways and buses jumped more than 5% to $2.90 on Sunday, slapping another strain on many of the system’s millions of daily riders. The fare hike, which also includes the MTA’s Metro North and LIRR rail rides, came two weeks after tolls went up on the state agency’s bridges and tunnels.

    The investment firm run by liberal billionaire George Soros was a major investor in a now-bankrupt electric bus company that was heralded by the Biden administration as the future of green transit, and lost as much as $105 million in the two years since the company went public, according to a Daily Wire analysis. Soros Fund Management was one of the earliest investors in Proterra — when the company went public in June 2021 the fund owned 7.75 million shares of the company, an investment worth over $132 million dollars, according to legally required quarterly disclosures. The stock price of...

    The Biden administration proposed a new and ambitious set of fuel economy standards for cars and light-duty trucks Friday, its latest move to prod American consumers towards adopting electric vehicles (EVs). The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), a subagency of the Department of Transportation (DOT), unveiled the updated Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards, which would require cars and lighter trucks to improve their respective fuel efficiencies by 2% and 4% starting in 2027, according to a DOT press release announcing the proposal. The rule would also mandate work vans and pickup trucks to increase their fuel efficiencies by...

    Former Trump attorney Michael Cohen says Walt Nauta, the valet to the former president charged in the classified and sensitive documents case, should look out for himself and not think that Trump will protect him. Cohen said in an interview with CNN’s Kaitlan Collins on Thursday that Nauta believes the former president will protect him if he is loyal and not “throw him under the bus.” But he said Nauta should be able to learn from Cohen’s own experience, and those of other former Trump allies, that Trump can’t be trusted to protect his associates.

    French police have declared they are 'at war' with 'savage hordes of vermin' amid widespread rioting and looting that saw a bus stolen and a car smashed into a supermarket front. Two police unions threatened a revolt unless Emmanuel Macron's government restored order amid protests sparked by the killing of a French-Algerian teenager by police on Tuesday - also causing the French president to cancel his trip to Germany. 'Today the police are in combat because we are at war,' a report from the unions said. 'Tomorrow we will enter resistance and the government should be aware of this.' It...

    Some say the road to Hel is paved with good intentions — but the bus that gets you there certainly isn’t. That’s according to some conservative Christian groups, who say the “666” bus to Hel, Poland, has devilish intentions since its route number represents Satan and it goes to a place that sounds like “hell.” The local bus operator PKS Gdynia has responded to the complaints by announcing its decision to change the route number from 666 to 669. “This year we are turning the last 6 upside down!” the local bus company wrote on social media Monday.

    As the U.S. government rolls out an array of climate measures included in the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), electric school buses have emerged as one of the low-hanging fruits. They can immediately improve health for children and communities, while expediting the broader transition to electric vehicles — a crucial step in preventing the worst impacts of climate change. That’s why it is great news that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) just announced nearly $1 billion in rebate awards to 389 school districts. A full 95 percent of the buses funded will be...

    Vice President Kamala Harris experienced a new round mockery after touting her love of "yellow school buses" during her Seattle appearance on Wednesday. Harris spoke at Lumen Field in Seattle with a backdrop of four electric school buses to announce nearly $1 billion being awarded to school districts to replace older buses with electric vehicles. This funding came in part from the bipartisan infrastructure bill passed in 2021. During her speech, Harris commented on the nostalgia of a "yellow school bus." "Who doesn't love a yellow school bus, right? Can you raise your hand if you love a yellow school...
