Metra has opened a survey and scheduled a 3 to 7 p.m. informational session for Wednesday, July 19, at Millennium Station to solicit feedback about proposed changes to its fare structure for 2024 that would reduce the number of fare zones to four from 10 and change some of the fare options available.
The proposal aims to create a fare structure that customers can easily understand, that will encourage ridership, that will simplify onboard fare collection, and that meets Metra’s financial and technical constraints. Fares would be set at or below pre-pandemic fares, and promotional fares introduced during the pandemic would be discontinued.
Metra also will hold an online open house on Tuesday, July 25, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Customers can register by clicking here.
Feedback about the plan also can be sent to [email protected].
