BROOKLYN - 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 several Brooklyn residents what they think the MTA should do with the money and all agreed with DiNapoli's recommendation to reduce fares.

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