Transportation prices on the rise

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (WHDH) - Starting Tuesday, it's going to cost you a little more to get around.

MBTA riders can expect a price hike.

For adults, single bus or subway trips are going up by $0.10. It's a $0.05 increase for students and seniors. The price of a LinkPass and monthly commuter rail pass will be going up by $5.

Registry of Motor Vehicle fees are also going up.

A two-year registration for your car will cost you $60, up from $50. Safety inspections will now cost $35, a $6 increase.

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation said this will bring in around $55 million to $63 million in the new fiscal year. The hope is to close a $55 million budget gap.

It's also going to cost you more to fill up your gas tank.

The average price per a gallon in Massachusetts is $3.73. That's up $0.19 from this time last year.

Gas prices are at their highest level for this time of year since 2008.
