With fare hikes scheduled for 2015 and 2017 already, the NYPIRG Straphangers Campaign asked the city's Independent Budget Office what monthly unlimited MetroCard costs could look like even further down the line, given the rate of increases as we know them. The shocking, makes-you-grip-your-wallet-in fear answer? In 2023, it could cost $168 for a monthly. The IBO does hedge their prediction, noting that the MTA could choose not to raise rates as frequently in the coming decade. Still, yowza. [Brokelyn; official]
