New York City meets Munich

Fare thee well

One great thing about Metrocards versus tokens is that the MTA can raise fares really easily. Which is a great thing if you’re the MTA. Not so great for me, though. Especially since they are now raising the price reducing the current discount of the monthly and weekly cards:

On Feb. 27, subway riders will shell out $76 for 30-day unlimited MetroCards that now cost $70, and $24 for 7-day MetroCards that now cost $21. Express bus fares will also increase from $4 to $5, but pay-per-ride cards and local bus prices will not change.

I suppose that’s what will come next: it will still be $2 a ride, but the MTA will charge $25 for a $20 Metrocard.
