Train riders in Connecticut are facing fare hikes this new year. Metro North riders rang in 2013 with a 5 percent increase in ticket prices.

That means a one-way peak fare from New Haven to Grand Central is up one dollar.

Weekly passes are up $7, while a monthly ticket has gone from $415 to $436.

Shore Line East riders are seeing higher fares as well.

It is the second fare hike in eight years.
