Below are the fares charged for single boardings on the transit lines and predecessors of the New York City Transit Authority (NYCTA). Different combinations of transfer privileges and the abolition of double fares to the Rockaways have altered these fares from time to time. Since 1997, massively increased transfer privileges and pass discounts have lowered the average real fare significantly. According to MTA figures, only 2.1% of rides are single-ride fares.[1]

On November 23, 2005, a $1 holiday fare promotion was instituted by the MTA on behalf of all riders until January 2, 2006. Express Buses continued to require the regular fare. On Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, the local bus rides were free.
