MTA 2017 Toll Hike Almost a Certainty

New York Daily News reports, “The MTA on Wednesday [July 27] issued a financial plan that includes an all but definite fare hike in 2017, with the aim of raising more than $300 million annually for a transit system struggling to provide reliable service. Just how the MTA comes up with a cash infusion — tweaking MetroCard and commuter rail prices as well as bridge and tunnel tolls — is up to agency officials.”
