NEW YORK (PIX11) -- It happens on midnight Sunday morning.

The latest round of fare and toll hikes take affect. The last increase was in 2013. They amount to about a 4% increase for fares and tolls.

The MTA has posted signs that detail some savings: Put $5.50 or more on a MetroCard at a time to get an 11% bonus. That lowers the price of the swipe (which goes up a quarter to $2.75).

If you take more than 13 rides a week, consider buying the unlimited weekly card.
