NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the biggest transportation network in North America, approved fare hikes on Wednesday that will raise the base price of a ride to $2.50 from $2.25.

The price of a 30-day unlimited ride MetroCard will also rise to $112 from $104.
