"How will you be affected by proposed fare increases if city buses are no longer subsidized for suburban students attending school in D.C?" Staff writer Joann Stevens and photographer Michael Ford Parks went to Gonzaga College High School at 900 North Capitol St. NW to talk to commuting students. Jerry McGrath, 16, sophomore, Montgomery County resident: "That means I wouldn't have enough money to spend in school for food, supplies. I might have to cut back on books. I take the Metro and the bus (to school). My parents give me the money." Mark McCaig, 15, sophomore, Chevy Chase, Md., resident: "I'll just have to pay more. My family will be able to pay. I might have to cut back on my lunch money or something. David Lavan, 15, sophomore, Alexandria, Va., resident: "I pay 90 cents in the morning and 65 cents to go back at night. It'll cost more. It won't effect my spending habits but I guess it'll affect my parents. They pay for it." Brian Washington, 15, freshman, Colesville, Md., resident: "It won't really bother me too much. My father can bring me in and then I get the subway. If they change the fare I'll come in with my father more often." Martin Niland, 14, freshman, Silver Spring, Md., resident: "I take the rail. I have to pay 70 cents each way and it runs into a lot of money. I heard in July they may increase the (rail) fare. Next year it would be rather upsetting to have rail fares raised. I really think they should have lower rates for students." Craig Dahlman, 15, sophmore, Germantown, Md., resident; "Right now it costs $45 a month to get to school. My parents pay it. They would cut back in other areas if they had to pay more fare." Carl Sumter, 17, junior, Oxon Hill, Md., resident: "It's going to cost more. We'll have less money at home. It costs $8 a week now. We're cutting back now. My sister will be going to (school in) Georgetown next year that will be $8 more."
