MTA proposes fare hike that would increase LIRR one-way peak ticket
The cost of commuting could go up in just a couple of months.
The MTA is proposing fare hikes across the board for the first time in four years.
One-way peak Long Island Railroad tickets could go up 4.6%.
Monthly and weekly passes could go up 4.3%. The subway base fare would go from $2.75 to $2.90.
Toll fares would see the biggest jump of 5.5%.
The MTA hasn't increased fares since 2019 because of the pandemic.
Public hearings are set for next month and then the board will vote in July.
If approved, the changes will take effect on Labor Day.
