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.
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.
