NEW YORK, NY – FEBRUARY 27: A customer swipes her metro card as she moves through the turnstiles at the Fulton Center subway station, February 27, 2019 in New York City. On Wednesday, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) board voted to raise fares for New York City subway and bus riders starting in April. The board approved increases for weekly and 30-day monthly passes, but will keep the base subway and bus fares at $2.75 and eliminate the bonus MetroCard. The bonus card gave riders a 5 percent bonus for putting multiple rides on a pay-per-ride card. (Photo by Drew Angerer/Getty Images)
