FAIRFIELD - A big hike in parking fees could be on track for commuters at the Fairfield and Southport railroad stations.

The Parking Authority says it is considering raising the cost of parking permits from $340 to $420 at the downtown station.

At the Southport station, it would cost $285.

The authority says it also plans to raise the annual cost of a bike locker from $25 to $30.

The changes would take effect July 1.

A public hearing will be held, but has not been scheduled yet.
