Metro Bus is considering raising the fares for some fixed route service and Dial-A-Ride. Some examples are...the cash fare for fixed route would go up by a dime to $1.10, 10-day tokens would go up by $1.00 and 31-day passes would go from $43.00 to $45.00.
Dial-A-Ride cash fare would go from $2.00 to $2.20, 10-ride cards would go up by $2.00 and 31-day all service passes would go from $66.00 to $72.00.
