Commuters who rely on the MTA could soon have to pay more to ride the buses and trains. 

It would be the first base fare hike for New York City since 2015, and MTA officials are considering the increase. 

One group of commuters the cost of ridership may take a toll on is churchgoers.

Deacon Ron Rizzuto, a pastoral associate and business manager at the Cathedral Basilica of St. James is one of those individuals who would be impacted.

And like many, he believes now is not the time to raise prices.
