Ratner Planning to Pay Fans' Subway Fare

Bowing to pressure that an 18,000-seat arena will overload Brooklyn's parking capacity, Bruce Ratner and New York's MTA are working on plan to have the Nets pay fans' subway fares on game night. The plan would take advantage of the computer chip embedded in MTA farecards. The Nets' new arena is planned for Brooklyn's busiest intersection and parking will be limited. But it will also sit above the city's third busiest subway station linking 10 different lines.
