Good news for Metra riders who have been dealing with fare increases for several years.
Metra announces there will NOT be a fare hike in 2019! However, it looks like there will be increases the following year.
In a tweet today, they said:
"There will be no fare increases for 2019. We will need your help with securing a sustainable capital funding source going forward into 2020 and beyond. If no sustainable funding source materializes, there will be a rapid deterioration of Metra service as it exists today."
