MTA fare hike does not affect Connecticut riders

The Metropolitan Transit Authority’s decision Wednesday to raise Metro-North fares will not affect Connecticut commuters. Connecticut DOT sets commuter rail fares here.

“While there will be an increase of 5.04% on Jan. 1, 2013 for Connecticut fares, that is nowhere near the 9-16% fare hike being planned by the MTA for Metro-North riders in New York State,” said Jim Cameron, chairman of the CT Metro-North Rail Commuter Council.

As a result of the MTA’s action, the price of a subway ride will go up to $2.50 beginning March 1. The price of a weekly and monthly Metrocard will also go up.

Riders on the commuter rails will see increases and tolls on the MTA’s bridge and tunnel crossings will rise 8% to 9%.
