Get ready for $3 subway and bus fares.
That's a worst-case-scenario being considered by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, which must close a projected $1.2 billion shortfall next year.
The MTA released a list of proposed maximum fares and tolls in a notice providing the schedule for eight public hearings to discuss the planned increases and service cuts.
Besides the single ride subway and bus hike from $2 to $3, the authority is looking at raising the weekly MetroCard from $25 to $32 and the 30-day unlimited ride MetroCard from $81 to $105.
The hearing notice also said some fares on Metro-North and the Long Island Rail Road could rise by as much as a third.
The first hearing is scheduled for Jan. 14.
