FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. — Fares will increase 5.04 percent for Metro-North riders in Connecticut beginning Jan. 1.
The increase is part of a budget proposed last year by Gov. Dannel Malloy. Fares went up 5.25 percent at the start of 2012 and are expected to rise in the beginning of 2014 as well. The fare increase was the first in seven years.
The new rates will affect ticket prices for travel between stations within Connecticut and travel between Connecticut and New York stations. The increase does not affect travel between stations within New York state. A table of the new fare prices for each station is available online.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority approved a new budget Wednesday that includes increases to subway, bus and train fares within New York state. The Long Island Rail and Metro-North Rail in New York will see increases of 8.19 percent to 9.31 percent, while tolls on MTA bridges will increase to $7.50.
