Parking fees may be going up for Metro-North and Long Island Rail Road commuters.

Metro-North wants to hike rates at its parking lots and garages by 14.5 percent.

The LIRR wants to raise parking fees by more than 20 percent at the station garages in Mineola and Ronkonkoma.

The MTA board will consider those increases and new fare hikes when it meets Monday and Wednesday.
