Wallets will be lighter for many Hudson Valley commuters starting this week, as fare hikes to the Westchester Bee-Line and New York City subways and buses take effect Sunday.
MetroCard fares for all the systems are slated to increase by 25 cents to $2.50 per ride. Thirty-day unlimited cards will be $112, an $8 hike from the current $104, and seven-day unlimited passes will be $30 from the current $29. A single ride on the subway or bus will cost $2.75.
Tolls for MTA-operated bridges and tunnels will also increase: It will now cost $7.50 to cross most of them ($5.33 for E-ZPass users).
