The city just keeps getting more expensive and that includes getting around on our mass transit system. Just announced: As of March 2013, it will cost a whopping $2.50 (raised from $2.25) in order to take a ride on the G Train or any line. According to the Observer, “This is the fourth hike in five years. The motion was approved unanimously…And it may not sound like much, but a $2.50 MetroCard is 25 percent more expensive over that period, when it cost $2.”

What do you think about this fare hike? What service improvements do you expect? Will you opt for riding your bike?

  1. If they want to reduce car traffic in the city this is not the way to do it. Its now cheaper to drive for a lot of people than take the subway.
