MTA's board is soliciting public comment on two different proposals, which would take effect in March 2015 on subways, buses, and the Staten Island Railway (also bridges).
The single-ride fare increases in 25-cent increments. Changes to 7-Day and 30-Day Unlimited Ride MetroCards are the same in both proposals.
-----> In Proposal 1, the base fare increases by 25¢, and the bonus amount is increased from 5% to 11% when putting $5.50 or more on a MetroCard.
-----> In Proposal 2, the base fare for cash, Single Ride Tickets, and Pay-Per-Ride MetroCards remains unchanged at $2.50, but the bonus for putting $5 or more on a MetroCard is eliminated.
In both proposals, the cost of a 30-Day Unlimited Ride MetroCard increases to $116.50 and the cost of a 7-Day Unlimited Ride MetroCard increases to $31.
