MTA fare, toll hike hearings scheduled

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM -

Public hearings will be held in November over the proposed increase in fares and tolls by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

The agency says it needs to generate more than $380M to balance next year's budget.

Several proposals are on the table including raising the base fare for straphangers from $2.25 to $2.50.

The monthly MetroCard would rise from $104 to $109.

The MTA would do away with the 7 percent MetroCard bonus.

The board would vote on the proposed hike in December.

If the fare hike is approved, it could take effect as early as March 2013.
