According to the LIRR, most commuter rail tickets will increase between 8.19 percent and 9.31 percent, depending on ticket type and distance traveled. A complete list of new ticket prices are listed on the LIRR’s website.

Commuters in Syosset, which lies in Zone 7, will now pay $276 for a monthly ticket. Peak one-way fares will jump to $12.50 and off-peak one-way tickets will cost $9. Head to the MTA website for a full list of fare changes.

Fares on New York City subways and buses will also increase on March 3, with a single subway ride rising to $2.50.

In addition, beginning on March 3, a $1 fee will be charged for each new MetroCard purchased at a commuter rail station, MetroCard vending machine or subway booth. To avoid this fee, riders are advised by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to retain used MetroCards and continue to refill them.
