Metro-North fares will increase by 5 percent on the New Haven Line and Shoreline East after the new year.

The increase, approved by the Department of Transportation, takes effect Jan. 1 and will affect passengers traveling between Connecticut train stations and from Connecticut to New York.

New Haven Line riders who commute to Grand Central Terminal using a monthly pass will see a fare increase of $20. Daily peak tickets will increase by nearly $8.

It's the third of three pre-approved increases that took effect beginning in Jan. 2012, according to the DOT.

Monthly and weekly ticket holders traveling from Rye and Port Chester to Manhattan will see a fare increase of about 2.5 percent following previous fare adjustments implemented this past March.

Transportation officials said the increase will help to pay for new rail cars.

More information and a full list of price increases can be found on the MTA website.
