Metro Board Approves Service Cuts & Fare Hikes

WMATA's board just unanimously voted to raise fares across the Metrorail and Metrobus system, cut service and unprofitable bus lines.

How this effects you:

  • Metrorail fares increase 10-cents during peak and 25-cents during off-peak
  • Metrobus fares increase from $1.75 to $2.00
  • During peak hours, Metrorail trains will run every 8 minutes (it's 6 now)

Changes will begin in July. More from ABC7.
