With the start of the new year, Metro-North Commuter Railroad says riders who travel from the Rye and Port Chester stations will be paying 4% more as part of a phased-in fare hike.
Here are the details from Metro-North:
For Rye & Port Chester Stations
There will be fare adjustments for travel to and from Rye and Port Chester. These New York State fare adjustments were previously approved by the MTA Board but were subject to phased implementation in order to avoid exceeding the existing fares from Greenwich Station.
In December 2010, while the overall average NYS fare increase implemented was approximately 9%, Rye and Port Chester station fares were only raised an average of approximately 5% as a result of these fare hold-downs. As a result, most of the remaining average increase of approximately 4% for travel to and from Rye and Port Chester stations is being implemented on January 1, 2012.
