live. we are talking a 9% increase. what does that translate into for commuters? >> reporter: well, chris, it's not just more money out of their pockets, it's frustration as well. because this is the fifth time in just over a decade that new jersey transit has increased its prices for rail and train tickets. this rate hike for rail and bus tickets comes after the company made a system-wide, major system-wide cut. so what can you expect? one way fares between camden, they go up $1.25 a. monthly train ticket goes up $40. the increases needed we are told to close a $60 million budget gap. now this rate hike has also become political for some. some democrats are blameing republican governor chris christie for failing to find a revenue source for the state's transportation trust fund. coming up in the next hour, we'll have more on how this is going to affect households throughout this area.
