If you haven’t heard, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) is raising fares making one subway or bus ride cost $2.75!
The new fares, which will take effect on March 22, were part of a package of increases approved for the system’s trains, buses, tunnels and bridges.
Fare increases have become routine and are scheduled to occur every two years as part of the authority’s long-term revenue plans. The previous increase, in 2013, raised the base fare to $2.50, from $2.25.
