The MTA fare hike goes into effect on Sunday! Here’s what you’ll be paying

Will Gleason

As you’re probably already aware, this has not been the best week went it comes to train service. After two mornings of a nightmare commute on the L line (because of “rail conditions”) there are even more delays and service changes today.

Due to a problem at 42 St-Port Authority, northbound E trains are running on the M line from W 4 St-Washington Sq to 5 Av-53 St. In addition, an incident at Jackson Hts-Roosevelt Ave, has forced the E and F trains to run with residual delays. And because of planned work, Brooklyn Bridge-bound 6 trains are running local from Parkchester to 3 Av-138 St in the Bronx.

This may not be the best time to mention this, but in case you forgot, the new MTA fare hike goes into affect this Sunday. Starting on March 22, single ride tickets will now cost $3, and base fares will be raised from $2.50 to $2.75. Unlimited Monthly Metrocards will now cost $116.50 with weekly unlimited cards clocking in at a cool $31. 

For bus, bridge and tunnel increases check out our full list of fare hikes. The end times for the below $3 single subway ride are upon us.
