Public Input Sought on Metro Fare Increase
ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – You’ll be paying more to ride a Metrolink train or bus, likely in July, but in the mean time Metro wants to hear from you.
Metro Spokeswoman Dianne Williams says public input will be sought during meetings beginning April 16th.
Metro is considering three options: one would increase only weekly, monthly and University semester passes. The second option would increase those same passes along with an increase of the airport transfer fee.
The third would increase all fares, across the board, by a small amount.
Williams says bus fares would increase from $2.00 to $2.10 and Metrolink fares would go from $2.25 to $2.35
Metro will distribute brochures next week at metro stations and transit centers explaining the options further.
Meetings will be held:
April 16 at East St. Louis City Hall from 5 P.M. to 7 P.M.
April 18 at St. Louis City Hall from 11:30 A.M. to 1:30 P.M.
April 18 at St. Louis County Government Center from 4 P.M. to 6 P.M.
April 19 at Metro Headquarters, 707 N. 1st Street, St. Louis from 5 P.M. to & P.M.
