The 2013 CTA budget calls for fare hikes for daily, three day, seven day and 30 day passes effective Jan. 14.
The New Year will mean higher fares for half of the CTA’s ridership.
The risks include a spike in fuel prices, severe snow or heat, a major derailment or a bridge failure.
The Metra board has approved the largest fare increase in the agency’s history.
If you are worried about a Metra fare increase, and want to stockpile 10-ride tickets, you had better act now.
Metra is preparing riders for higher fares and possible service cuts next year.
