LIRR Fares Increasing Come Friday

Local commuters will pay more to ride the trains; subway fares rising as well.

Long Island Rail Road riders will be paying more to ride the train beginning Friday.

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.

For local riders using the Sayville station, which is in the LIRR’s Zone 10, the peak one-way fare will now be $17.50 with the off-peak one-way fare $12.75.

Monthly tickets for travel from either station to Penn Station will now be $363 and weekly tickets for travel to and from Penn Station will be $116.25.

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.

I hope they are going to use that increase to make some much needed repairs and updates. It will probably line the pocket of some head honcho. LIRR is the worst ever! A butterfly lands on the tracks and takes service out for hours.
