    Metro is working to finalize its Inauguration Day plans this week.

    The transit agency expects between 500,000 and 800,000 people to ride buses and trains on Jan. 21. And riders may be using special commemorative farecards.

    One design features President Barack Obama while another shows GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

    And just because Inauguration Day falls on Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday, doesn't mean fares will be cheaper -- Metro is considering peak time fares.

    Metro's finance committee will review the proposals tomorrow.
