Many New Jersey Transit riders are headed for a fare hike next month.

The increase takes effect March 1 at roughly half of the stations on the Main, Bergen and Pascack Valley lines.

NJ Transit officials say the hike is an automatic increase.

It is being triggered by higher fares imposed on March 1 by Metro-North.

A one-way ticket on a 14-zone trip along the Main and Bergen lines to New York will increas from $12.25 to $13.

A monthly pass to New York from Montvale will climb from $270 to $284.
