Metra Proposing Fair Increases and Service Changes
Metra is proposing a combination of fare increases and cuts in expenses, including cutting a small number of trains, to close the budget gap. Under the budget proposal:
  • The price of One-Way Tickets would increase by 25 cents in all zones (a 2.3 percent to 6.7 percent increase). Customers who ride Metra 30 times a year would pay an additional $7.50.
  • The price of 10-Ride Tickets would increase $4.25 to $7.75 (8 percent to 12.6 percent) depending on the zone.
  • The price of Monthly Passes would increase $9 to $12.50 (4.1 percent to 8.4 percent) depending on the zone. That would be an annual increase of $108 to $150.
  • The price of Weekend Passes would increase to $10 from $8 but they would now be valid on Friday evenings (trains arriving or leaving downtown after 7 p.m.) in addition to all day Saturday and Sunday.
  • Reduced fare ticket prices also will increase, but an earlier proposal to eliminate the reduced fare Monthly Pass has been scrapped.
  • The proposed new fare table is here.
In addition, a small number of weekday trains would be curtailed or eliminated on the North Central Service, SouthWest Service and Rock Island Line, and weekend trains would be cut on the Milwaukee District North Line. (Full details are  here. )
