Pretty much everyone except the monthly travel pass holders (check here for details) and that means adults (including children who uses adult pass), students, single trip ticket (train), adult cash fares (bus) and even senior citizens.

However different people get different price increase.

For students and senior citizens, the fare increases is capped at 1 cent.

For those using adult passes, the fare increases by 6 cents.
