Monday’s MTA meeting provided us with an opportunity to see what the new fares will be in June 2009, as well as get reassurances that there won’t be any service cuts, although some workers will be laid off, or positions will go unfilled. Read the Liveblog of the MTA meeting if you want to get some information first hand.
Thanks to Benjamin Kabak at Second Avenue Sagas, here’s a quick look at what the new fares will be on June 28, 2009:
|Base Fare||$2.00||$2.25||12.5 %|
|Bonus and Buy-In||15 % at $7.00 ($1.74)||15 % at $8.00 ($1.96)||12.5 %|
