Des Plaines Metra Fares Increase: What Will Tickets Cost You?

 

Metra riders are no longer getting a discount for purchasing a 10-ride fare.

The Metra Board of Directors voted last month to change the cost of the once discounted 10-ride pass to be equivalent to the price of 10 one-way fares. The change was made to help fund capital improvement projects, the Park Ridge Herald-Advocate reports. The policy went into effect Feb 1. 

Des Plaines commuters will now pay $47.50 for a 10-ride pass, or $4.75 for a one-way ticket. Monthly passes are $135.25 and weekend tickets are $7.

Ten-ride tickets purchased between Nov. 17 and Jan. 31 are valid through Feb. 28. 

What do you think about the Metra fare increase? Will you take Metra less?
