Thanks to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) bus, subway fares and tolls are now in effect for the fifth time in eight years, the MTA has increased subway, bus and bridge crossings fares. NYC monthly pass now costs $116.50, and single rides are up to $2.75.However, the subways are more crowded and filthier than ever and the service is worse than that causing some commuters to chant more transportation agony.
New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority is one of the world's largest public transportation system and it is facing a $15.2 billion shortfall for all of its infrastructure repair needs.
