Metro-North, CTtransit fare hikes go into effect

Beginning today, commuters on Metro-North will be paying more for their ride.



A 6-percent fare hike went into effect at midnight. Fares on CTtransit buses are also going up today.



MTA officials say the fare hike is partly due to the costs of modernizing the railroad with safety measures such as positive train control technology.
