Metro-North, LIRR Drinks May Get More Expensive

NEW YORK (CBS 2) — Cocktail hour on the suburban commuter rail lines was likely to get a little more expensive Monday.

An MTA committee was expected to vote on a proposal to charge 25 cents more for drinks on bar cars and at platform concession carts on the Long Island Railroad and Metro-North.

If approved, a glass of wine would go to $5.75 and the price of a beer would rise to $4.75.

Riders would also pay more for bottled water and soda.
