While subway service is still not up to 100 percent after the storm, straphangers will still get a chance to weigh in on the MTA's fare hike proposals during a public hearing Wednesday.

It's set for 5 p.m. at the New York Marriott at 333 Adams Street in Brooklyn.

Last month, the MTA announced four possibilities for next year's fare hike.

One plan would raise the price of an unlimited monthly MetroCard from $104 to $125, while another increases the base fare by 25 cents.

Public hearings will be held in each of the five boroughs, though a hearing scheduled for today on Long Island has been postponed.
