MTA Approves Latest Round Of Fare, Toll Hikes
Just last week, the MTA approved its latest fare and toll hike proposal, which calls for raising the base subway and bus fare 25 cents to $2.50. The price of a seven-day MetroCard will now rise from $29 to $30, and a 30-day MetroCard would go up from $104 to $112. The plan also trims the pay-per-ride MetroCard bonus from seven percent to five percent. Riders will get that bonus with any purchase of $5 or more.
