PATH train riders are now shelling out more for their trips.

Starting at 3 a.m. Monday, the price of a one-way ride on the interstate transit line operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey went up a quarter to $2.25 per trip. It marks the second phase of a toll and fare increase package approved by the authority in August 2011.

PATH riders who use the PATH Smart Card can get a discount to a one-way fare of $1.70, off the $2.25 fare. But cash customers and those using Metrocards will pay full fare.

PATH riders are also paying more for multi-day passes. The seven-day Smart Link pass now costs $3 more, or $24, while the 30-day Smart Link pass is $73, up $8.
