MetroCard rates increasing for the second time in two years
MetroCards will soon cost Bronx residents more. Starting February 27 the MTA will raise fares on weekly and monthly MetroCards. But, if residents buy a 7-day pass before the deadline it will still last the full week. The grace period ends March 7 and the last day a 30-day pass at the old price will work is April 3.
This will be the second price increase in the last two years. The MTA says the extra funds are needed to close budget gaps.
