Main, Bergen County & Pascack Valley Lines: Face Fare Increase Effective March 1, 2013

Ridgewood NJ, just weeks after NJT was nearly shut down by Hurricane Sandy ,NJT announces that some stations on the Main Line , Bergen County Line  and Pascack Valley lines.

NJ TRANSIT fares are influenced by Metro-North fares in New York State.  At times when NJ TRANSIT fares would otherwise be higher than Metro-North fares, an automatic agreement is triggered that “holds down” NJ TRANSIT fares, with Metro-North reimbursing NJ TRANSIT for the difference.

This agreement keeps ticket prices consistent with distance traveled, and ensures that revenue is collected by the appropriate railroad. Currently, fares at selected stations on the Main, Bergen County and Pascack Valley lines are lower than trips of similar distance on other NJ TRANSIT rail lines.

On Friday, March 1, 2013, Metro-North fares will increase, automatically triggering an adjustment to NJ TRANSIT fares at stations where a “hold down” has been in effect.

  1. They are really going to raise our fares after the service we’ve suffered since Sandy? Is anyone up for a class action lawsuit for the service disruptions? Surely they represent some form of breach of contract?
