The change takes effect at 3 a.m. Monday.

 

"I need to find a new job," joked Nisa Ahmed, a worker at Hudson County Community College, who currently spends $13.50 a day between her PATH and NJ Transit train rides, commuting from Rahway.

I remember when the PA dropped the skinny on this last year. It'll be a .25 increase every year until 2015 in an attempt to "restore fiscal health as it begins rehabilitation and improvements on its infrastructure"

 

Maybe INDMan can chime in on this.

Holy crap, I didn't even know they were going to raise their fares. Damn.

 

 

A few years ago, before it was going up by a quarter (from 1.75), i remember PA announced that in the up coming years, it will be raised by 25 Centers. I think only up to 2.75. Didn't realize it was happening so soon...

I thought the fare was already 2.25, to be perfectly honest.....

 

 

Me too (last year). But nah, $2 bucks.

It's about time they raised the fare at PATH, $2 to go from NY to NJ is very cheap considering NJT charges $5 from New York Penn to Newark Penn. By 2014 the fare will be $2.75 which is still cheap. Alot of the blame for the increase goes to those who don't pay to ride and in my 6 months that I was an agent before getting promoted, alot of people beat the fare.

The revenue raised by this will help with projects like the new Harrison Station, lengthening the platform at Grove St so NWK-WTC can run 10 cars, the new signal system, and many other projects including the ordering of PA-6 cars.

Is or will PATH accept unlimited MetroCards now that the fare is the same as the MTA's?
