New Metro Fare Structure Starts July 1, 2007

ARCHIVE MODE

Wednesday June 27, 2007

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) will change its fare structure for bus and rail service starting July 1, only the second change in the past 12 years. The shift will help give Metro financial stability while maintaining quality service.

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) will change its fare structure for bus and rail service starting July 1, only the second change in the past 12 years. The shift will help give Metro financial stability while maintaining quality service.

Regular cash fares will remain the same at $1.25 but the Metro Day Pass will go up from the current $3 to $5 July 1; a monthly pass will go up $10 to $62; a weekly pass will cost $17, up $3 from today; the semi-monthly pass will be eliminated; and an EZ transit pass good for use on Metro and the various municipal bus operators in Los Angeles County will increase $12 to $70.

There will be modest increases to senior, disabled and student fares, which haven’t changed since 1995 (see fare chart), and a new 25 cent non-rush hour fare will be available to the disabled and seniors.

To lessen the impact on the most transit dependent customers, Metro also will double the amount of money it gives major social service agencies to provide tokens and taxi vouchers for their clients. The total annual allocation will be $10 million.

Without a fare change, Metro was facing a projected $1.8 billion operating deficit over the next 10 years that would have severely impacted service for thousands of riders and stymied the transit agency’s efforts to provide new transit service in an era of rising gas prices and growing traffic congestion.

Attached is a complete Metro fare chart outlining the new fare structure. For more information on the new Metro fares, go to Metro.net or call 1-800-COMMUTE.Revised Metro Fare Schedule
