Story by Joe Dowd.

Long Island Rail Road riders out of Hicksville or Bethpage will be paying more to ride the train beginning Friday.

According to the LIRR, most commuter rail tickets will increase between 8.19 percent and 9.31 percent, depending on ticket type and distance traveled. A complete list of new ticket prices are listed on the LIRR’s website.

For local riders using the Hicksville station, or any located in the LIRR’s Zone 7, the peak one-way fare will now be $12.50 with the off-peak one-way fare $9.
Monthly tickets for travel from Zone 7 stations to Penn Station will now be $276.00.

Fares on New York City subways and buses will also increase on March 3, with a single subway ride rising to $2.50.

In addition, beginning on March 3, a $1 fee will be charged for each new MetroCard purchased at a commuter rail station, MetroCard vending machine or subway booth. To avoid this fee, riders are advised by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to retain used MetroCards and continue to refill them.
