The MTA is proposing yet another toll and fare hike.
There are two options proposed for subways and buses.
The first proposal would keep the base fare at $2.75, but eliminate the 5 percent bonus.
The second proposal would increase the base fare to $3, but would also increase the bonus to 10 percent.
An unlimited 30-day MetroCard currently costs $121. Under both plans, that cost would jump up to $127.
The agency also announced it needs to increase toll prices. There are two options for this as well.  
The first calls for a 4 percent increase for E-ZPass users. The other is an 8 percent increase.
The board is expected to vote on these hikes next year.
