NEW YORK -- The MTA releases its latest fare hike proposals for its rails, bridges, and subways.
For Metro-North customers, fares would go up between 8 and 9 percent.
If you ride the New York City subway, fare hikes vary with each of the agency's proposals. Under one proposal, base metro card fare would rise from $2.25 to $2.50. Under another proposal, the fare would remain the same.
Thirty-day unlimited subway fairs go up in all proposals.
Public hearings will be held on the rate proposals in November.
Despite the fare hikes, the MTA says it will spend less in controllable costs in 2012 than it did in 2011.
