Protesters Plan Rally Against MTA's Proposed Fare Hikes Before Final Public Hearing

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- People protesting the MTA's proposed fare hikes planned a rally Sunday before the transportation authority's final public hearing on Monday.

The proposed changes include increasing all fares on buses, subways, the Long Island Railroad and Metro-North.

The MTA could also eliminate 7-Day and 30-Day passes, and raise the "green fee," which is the surcharge for purchasing a new Metrocard.

Fare hikes would also impact EZPass users at bridge and tunnel crossings.
