Happy hour may be getting pricier for riders on two New York commuter railroads.

The agency that runs Long Island Rail Road and Metro-North trains is proposing to charge 25 cents more for some beer, wine and liquor sold by bar cars and platform commissary carts. A Metropolitan Transportation Authority committee is set to vote Monday.
 
The change would boost the price of a glass of wine on Metro-North to $5.75, and the bill for a Foster's beer at the LIRR to $4.75, for example. Metro-North riders also would pay more for spring water and soda.
 
The agency says the increases would bring in an estimated $250,000 a year to help offset higher costs charged by suppliers.
