Trainspotter 0 Posted January 30, 2008 Share #1 Posted January 30, 2008 Change on MetroCard bonuses Subway and bus riders who purchase the city's pay-as-you-go MetroCards will only need to spend $7 to receive a bonus, officials said, dropping the minimum from $10 when fare hikes take effect March 2, the MTA board decided Wednesday. The fare hikes, which touch all sectors of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's empire, reduce MetroCard bonuses from 20 percent to 15 percent, although the base fare of $2 is preserved. Fares on the Long Island Rail Road and MetroNorth also increase under the plan between 3.76 percent and 4.25 percent. The hikes were approved by a majority of the board in December.
