It is only a projection, but an advocacy group warned Tuesday that if the Metropolitan Transportation Authority goes on raising fares as it has the past two times, a single subway or bus ride could cost $3.75 in 10 years.
Executive Director Jim Weinstein says the transit agency plans to keep fares from rising for the fourth straight year.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority on Monday formally announced plans that would hike fares for the city’s transit system.
When it comes to public transportation, one thing is certain, Metropolitan Transportation Authority fares are definitely going up. But the big question is how much?
The price of a one-way ride has gone up a quarter to $2.25 per trip. A weekly unlimited pass went up $3 to $24 and a monthly unlimited pass went up $8 to $73.
It marks the second phase of a toll and fare increase package approved by the authority in August 2011.
