New Haven Line Hikes Prices


As if heading back to work today isn’t hard enough, it is costing some Metro-North commuters more, too.

New Haven line riders who travel to or from Rye and Port Chester pay about 4% more than they did last year.  Monthly passes between Grand Central Terminal and those stations now cost $247; a one-way peak ticket costs $11; and one-way off-peak fare is $8.25.

Those fares reflect tickets bought from ticket booths or machines.  Tickets bought onboard are higher.

The increase brings Rye and Port Chester ticket prices in line with fares to other New Haven line stops in New York, which experienced a 9% increase in 2010.

Connecticut commuters are ringing in the new year with an even bigger price hike. Connecticut riders, regardless of whether they instate or not, now pay 5.3% more then in 2011.
