For local riders using the Patchogue station, which is in the LIRR’s Zone 10, the peak one-way fare will now be $17.50 with the off-peak one-way fare $12.75.
Monthly tickets for travel from either station to Penn Station will now be $363 and weekly tickets for travel to and from Penn Station will be $116.25.
