RONKONKOMA - MTA and Long Island Rail Road officials say parking garage fees are going up at the Ronkonkoma and Mineola train stations.

The fees will rise from $54 a month to $70 a month.

As News 12 reported last week, parking at the newly built garage at the Wyandanch train station will start out at $70.

Commuters were notified recently by email about the monthly parking increase.

The MTA and LIRR say the hike will cover maintenance and 24-hour security.

The fee increase will take effect on Sept. 1.
