NJ Transit fare hike starts tomorrow

Posted: Updated:

New York commuters who use NJ Transit will pay more for their tickets starting tomorrow.

The 25-percent fare hike takes effect May 1, raising the price of a monthly ticket to an average of $40. Officials say the increase is necessary to close New Jersey's $300 million transit deficit.

NJ Transit train and bus services will also be cut, along with 200 jobs.
