For those Cunard Passengers transiting to/from NYC and Upcoming Personal City Excursions, Fare Hikes are coming in the Month of August to the city.

 

As of August 20th, City Buses and Subways fares are rising from 2.75 to $2.90 a ride.

Those using Express Buses fares are rising from 6.75 to $7.00.

 

Those heading into the City by personal transportation (car) the 9 Crossings - Bridges & Tunnels will rise on Aug 6th to $11.19 and $6.94 for EZ Pass owners.

 

Just wanted to share this information with those heading to New York City and also to the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal. Keeping in mind those Touring the Big Apple while staying in the city.

If only the fare increase only applied to Cunard passengers  it would save the rest of us a lot of money...😀. Perhaps you meant to post this on the Cunard board rather than here....yes it looks like the thread was originally on the Cunard board and moved by the mods.

There's a thread on this board started several days ago about the fare increase:

Please note the the Port Authority crossings (between NY and NJ) are run by a different agency and not affected by these toll increases.
