MTA Reminds Customers That Fares and Tolls Will Increase in Early March

Share

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) is reminding customers that fares and tolls will increase at the beginning of next month.

The need for additional revenue, which had been assumed in MTA budget forecasts beginning in 2009, was confirmed in July 2012. The MTA announced specific fare and toll increase proposals last October. The proposals were reviewed at a series of eight public hearings and four public video submission sessions held throughout the region in November. The MTA Board adopted the increases on December 19.
