MTA fare hike takes effect Sunday
/Posted: / /Updated: /
By MYFOX NEW YORK STAFF
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -
The long anticipated MTA fare increase is expected to take effect on Sunday.
The base fare of a single subway or bus ride in New York City will go up
a quarter, from $2.50 to $2.75.
The Board of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority approved the
hikes on the MetroCard, tolls at MTA bridges and tunnels, and fares on
the commuter railroads.
The cost of the unlimited-ride monthly MetroCard will rise to $116.50.
The bonus for pay-per-ride MetroCards will increase to 11 percent from 5
Riding the Long Island Rail Road and Metro-North Railroad will cost
about 4 percent more.
Late last year, the MTA said it had cut over $1 billion from its annual
spending and planned to do more.
