Lastly, here is a brief press release about the upcoming fare hikes for NYC Buses & Subways:
The base fare for individual rides on New York City Transit’s buses, subways and Access-A-Ride vehicles remains at $2.25. For subway and bus trips only, the reduced fare for seniors and the disabled is $1.10. However, the single-ride ticket, available in vending machines only, is now priced at $2.50. These tickets must be used within two hours of purchase. Fares on express buses remain at $5.50 with an off-peak reduced fare of $2.75. The 7-Day Unlimited Ride MetroCard is now priced at $29, while the 30-Day Unlimited Ride MetroCard is priced at $104.
All pay-per- ride MetroCards will continue to function after the fare change. For time-based MetroCards purchased before December 30, customers must activate them by January 10, 2011, in order to receive their full validity periods. A $1 surcharge for purchasing a new MetroCard will go into effect in 2011 at a date to be announced. Customers are urged to pick up the New Fare Information brochure, which outlines the new fare structure and even helps you decide which MetroCard is right for you.
