Regional transit fares to increase Oct. 1
Fares for all regional transit services, including all bus and rail transit, will increase Sunday, Oct. 1.
Regular-route transit fares will increase by $0.25. Regular-route service includes METRO bus and rail, Northstar rail, Metro Transit bus, A Line bus, Metropolitan Council bus, Maple Grove Transit bus, Minnesota Valley Transit Authority bus, Plymouth MetroLink bus and SouthWest Transit bus.
Riders may pay for regular-route bus and rail fares using cash, Go-To Card stored value or any regional transit pass. Customers will no longer get a stored value bonus with purchases, but any value currently on a customer’s card will continue to be valid.
Customers may also qualify for a new Transit Assistance Program that allows qualifying low-income customers to use regular-route transit for $1 per ride. Enrollment for the program begins Oct. 2.
Metro Mobility fares will increase by $0.50. Metro Mobility non-ADA rides (those outside the federally mandated service area) longer than 15 miles will also be subject to a 75-cent surcharge. And Transit Link customers will pay the same fares as Metro Mobility customers, including a surcharge for trips longer than 15 miles.
Riders on Metro Mobility and Transit Link may pay fares with cash and Go-To Card stored value.
