FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- Metro-North has announced new train fares associated with the 1 percent rate hike that will take effect for all Connecticut stations on the New Haven Line.

The fare hike will help pay for the new M-8 cars that have been put into service in Connecticut. This is the fourth of seven consecutive annual increases requested by the Connecticut Department of Transportation.

The new fares are effective Jan. 1.

This increase will affect ticket prices for travel:

  • Between Connecticut and New York stations.
  • Between stations within Connecticut.
  • Some fares may not change due to rounding and the small percentage of the increase.

The fare increase does not affect travel to and from stations within New York State.

Here's a look at how the rate changes will impact the cost of travel to Grand Central Terminal. The rates are for a variety of tickets: Monthly (M), Weekly (W), One-Way Peak (P) and One-Way Off-Peak (OP), along with the current rates in parenthesis:
