You might have to shell out a little bit more for one-way, monthly and weekend passes soon.
They’re proposing a 25 cent increase for one way tickets.
How much will the increase on weekends and monthly passes be?
Well, they’re still trying to figure that out.
The Metra board will have to give it the OK first, but if it does passes it’ll be the fourth time in four years that they’ve raised prices!
The Chicago Tribune is reporting that the increase is to fill a major hole in Metra’s budget.
So how much money will these increases bring in?
Metra officials estimated that it’ll be somewhere around $22 million.
That sounds like a HUGE price increase! Yikes!
