New Metro Fare Hike Proposal Eases Burden on Riders

View Comments (


    The Metro Board is proposing Metro fare hikes, but local jurisdictions may be able to help riders out with the increased fares. News4 Transportation Reporter Adam Tuss explains.

    The latest proposal for a Metro fare hike is closer to becoming a reality, but there could be some relief for riders: Local jurisdictions may be willing to pay more to ease the burden.

    The Metro Board’s new proposal would require taxpayers to pay about $2.5 million more. That will be discussed Thursday.

    Regardless, some sort of increase is coming. Metro says it’s needed to keep pace with inflation.
