MTA fare and toll hikes

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

MTA subway, bus, and commuter rail fares and tunnel and bridge tolls are going up in March.

NYC TRANSIT, STATEN ISLAND RAILWAY, ACCESS-A-RIDE

Fare hikes for New York City subway and buses, the Staten Island Railway, and Access-A-Ride take effect Sunday, March 3, 2013, at 12:01 a.m.

The base fare for subways, local buses, SIR and Access-A-Ride is rising to $2.50 from $2.25; the base fare for express buses is rising to $6.00 from $5.50. Bonuses are being reduced, but you earn them at a lower price point.

A single-ride ticket (which hardly anyone buys anyway) purchased at a MetroCard machine will cost $2.75.

The 30-day unlimited-ride MetroCard will cost $112, up from $104. The 7-day unlimited-ride MetroCard will cost $30, up from $29. The 7-day express bus plus MetroCard will cost $55, up from $50.

The other big change involves the new MetroCard fee. You will have to pay a $1 fee for each new MetroCard purchased at a vending machine or station booth. You can avoid the fee by refilling your card instead of tossing it. If your card is expired or worn out, you can exchange it for free at a booth.

LONG ISLAND RAIL ROAD AND METRO-NORTH RAILROAD

For those using weekly tickets, which are always valid from Saturday through the following Friday, new fares take effect on Saturday, March 2.

The MTA says that most commuter rail tickets will increase between 8.2% and 9.3%, depending on ticket type and distance traveled. The discounted CityTicket fare for one-way weekend travel within New York City will rise to $4 from $3.75, starting March 2.

    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is holding its monthly board meeting, two days after it heard from a panel on what it needs to do to improve its accountability and efficiency and restore public trust.
    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey could rescind a $1-a-year lease for a park-and-ride lot near the Lincoln Tunnel. The agency's chief of real estate and development told a committee Wednesday that it should change a deal made in 2012. Published reports have alleged that former Port Authority chairman David Samson voted to approve the lease even though his law firm did business with New Jersey Transit, which operates the park-and-ride lot.
