Just months after straphangers were hit with a fare hike, the MTA is considering another increase, as subway delays spike as well.
In addition to subways and buses, a price hike would affect the Long Island Railroad and Metro-North, as well as bridges and tunnels.
MTA looking to raise fares again
The MTA says it needs to close a budget gap of nearly $900-million.
According to reports on the MTA's new budget plan, the agency wants to boost revenue on fares and tolls by 8 percent.
The last increase hit riders and drivers this past March, and another wasn't expected until early 2010. If the MTA board approves the new plan, the hike would go into effect next July.
