MTA debates MetroCard price hike

Commuters might have to brace for another MetroCard price hike. The MTA is considering raising the price of a monthly MetroCard from $89 to $130.

The $130 price tag is a lot larger than the $104 the MTA suggested last month.

The MTA will be holding a public hearing at Hostos Community College on Sept. 15.
