One Thing Never Gets Delayed In Bloomberg's New York

That's fare hikes on the subways!

On top of all the mass transit problems created by the storm, riders are also facing fare hikes that take effect tomorrow.

That means today is the last day to buy an unlimited ride MetroCard at the current rates.

The price of a monthly card is rising from $89 to $104, and the weekly card is rising from $27 to $29.

Riders can also buy a one-day or 14-day unlimited card for the last time before those cards are discontinued by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

Straphangers will not want to wait too long to activate the new cards, as they need to swipe them by January 10 to get the full value.

Take heart, New York - all of the burnt and buried MTA buses should be off the road by the time the fare hike goes into effect.
