Metrolink proposes fare hike
Metrolink fares as based on the distance between stations. The increased ticket prices would be adjusted accordingly.
In addition, the agency is proposing to require passengers to pay all or a portion of the cost to transfer to several connecting transit services. Currently, Metrolink subsidizes all transfer costs. However, some local transit operators are increasing their rates and the agency can no longer afford to cover them, Metrolink said.
