THE BRONX - State Comptroller Tom DiNapoli says a recent audit of the MTA found that the agency has $1.9 billion in what's being called “unanticipated funds.”

The MTA says it plans to use the funds to improve service and fund the next capital program, but DiNapoli is recommending the MTA consider shrinking a planned 15 percent fare hike over the next three years.

News 12 asked Bronx residents what they think the MTA should do with the money. One person thinks the MTA should use the money to help those in need, while another Bronx resident agrees with the MTA's plans to improve service.

The MTA released a statement saying that its goal is to keep future fare increases as low as possible.
