M.T.A. Bus and Subway Will Cost You More Thanks to Price Increase
Heads up, New Yorkers. You may want to reconfigure your latte budget thanks to the M.T.A.’s increased fare and toll prices. Now one subway or bus ride will cost you $2.75, which is .25 cents more than it was before. This is the second hike since 2013, when fares cost $2.25 per ride.
The New York Times says that, “The subway system has recently seen record use, with more than six million riders on some days, but the authority is facing questions over how to pay for long-term improvements to its infrastructure.”
