LIRR proposes another fare increase
Author: Lackawanna484

NY's MTA Long Island Rail Road has a program to raise fares every other year, far in advance of the inflation rate. Newsday says that fares have doubled in 20 years, and some believe this creates a threat to the vitality of the four counties.

The example rider will pay $6,400 yearly with an LIRR ticket and a monthly metrocard.  Parking would probably be more.
