The cost of unlimited monthly MetroCards will rise to $116.50 starting in March, the MTA decided during a Thursday meeting.
Base fares will rise from $2.50 to $2.75, elevating the cost of all other MetroCards on offer, the MTA said.
The new fare plan, set to take place on March 22, also includes an 11 percent bonus on purchases of $5.50 and more.
Additionally, the price of 7-Day Unlimited Ride MetroCards, used for 29% of trips, will be $31 instead of $30, the agency said.
The MTA board also passed a resolution increasing toll prices at its bridges and tunnels by roughly 4%.
For major crossings (Bronx-Whitestone, Throgs Neck, Robert F Kennedy Bridges and the Queens Midtown and Hugh L. Carey Tunnels), cash tolls will jump from $7.50 to $8. E-Zpass drivers will have to spend $0.21 more as the toll will rise to $5.54.
Crossing the Verrazano-Narrow Bridge will cost $16 (an increase of $1) for drivers who pay cash and $11.08 ( an increase of for $0.42) for those who pay with E-ZPass.
MTA board members called the fares increase “responsible and responsive,” emphasizing that, while they didn’t like to raise fares, it was necessary to keep the MTA afloat and to ensure the overall transportation system was in good condition.
