A planned MTA fare hike expected for later this year has been delayed again through at least 2022, top agency officials confirmed Monday.

The news follows a monthly committee meeting where Finance Chair Larry Schwartz announced, "There's not going to be a fare hike, period."

MTA Communications Director Tim Minton told News 4 New York the city's buses and subways wouldn't see a hike through the rest of the year.

Subway ridership has crept back up since the height of the New York City lockdown but it remains 50% lower than pre-pandemic levels.
