Question about stepup to peak fare with a ten-trip

Recommended Posts

If i have a ten trip to NYP and i have to use it during peak, how would that work? would the LIRR charge the difference from peak fare (ie cost of 10 trip divide by 10 and subtract that from peak fare) or make me buy a one way plus a $5 surcharge?

If you are in danger of not using up the ticket by the expiry date, by all means do so. However, it can result in a loss of money depending on what the step-up is.

 

Example: You own a 10trip off peak ticket from Speonk to Penn that is worth $108.5 unused. Each ride costs you $10.85.

 

Step up fare is $7.

 

You end up paying 17.85. A one-way peak ticket is 17.75. You lose a discount and 10 cents.
