The SEPTA board yesterday voted to increase the price of tokens by 10 cents and transfers by a quarter as of July 1, but not to raise the $2 base fare on buses, subways and trolleys.
Tokens, now $1.45, will rise to $1.55, and transfers, now 75 cents, will go to $1.
Weekly TransPasses, now $20.75, also will rise, to $22, and monthly TransPasses will rise from $78 to $83, the agency said.
Regional Rail fares also will go up, but less than originally planned.
Also, off-peak Regional Rail fares now offered before 7 p.m. on weekdays will be eliminated.
The fare increases, part of the fiscal year 2011 operating budget, average between 6 and 8 percent system-wide and are expected to generate about $20.7 million dollars for the budget.
The increases were needed, SEPTA said, because its dedicated funding from the state dried up after efforts to place tolls on Interstate 80 failed.
