NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Straphangers are going to be a little more strapped for cash after this weekend.
The price of a seven-day unlimited ride MetroCard for New York MTA subways and buses will increase from $32 to $33, while monthly go from $121 to $127.
Single-swipe cards remain at $2.75, but the five percent bonus is being eliminated, reports CBS2’s Marc Liverman.
The board approved the increase on February 27.
Earlier this month, toll rates went up at bridges and tunnels around the city.
