The board of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority voted on Thursday
to raise the fare on subways and buses
to $2.75 and the cost of a 30-day Metrocard by $4.50, to $116.50. The
fares take effect March 22
The fare hikes are expected to continue
every two years as part of the authority's budgeting.
The MTA currently faces a $15 billion shortfall
for its 5-year, $32 billion capital plan and is looking for help from
the City and State. The MTA has warned that without help it will have to
accelerate the schedule of fare hikes. The MTA has seen record levels of
usage in recent years.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo promised to invest $750 million in the MTA in his
budget, but did not address the larger funding gap. He has downplayed
the MTA's need.
