News broke this week that Long Island Railroad fares will increase in March.
On average, most LIRR tickets will increase from 8.19 percent to 9.31 percent, depending on ticket type and zone, according to the MTA.
At that rate, a one-way ticket from Syosset LIRR to Penn Station would go from the current $11.50 to between $12.44 and $12.57. Applying that rate to a monthly ticket will raise the price from the current $254 to between $274.80 and $277.65.
What do you think of the plans to raise LIRR prices? Have you gotten used to the price increases or do you think this hike is too much?
