MetroAccess Fare Changes to Begin Next Week

MetroAccess fares will change on Feb. 27 as part of Metro’s overall fare adjustments that were approved last June for the current fiscal year.

The new MetroAccess fares will be based on the distance and time of day that a customer travels. The MetroAccess fare will be twice the amount of what the fare would cost on the fastest comparable trip if the same trip were taken on fixed-route services (such as Metrobus and Metrorail), up to a maximum fare of $7. All grandfathered trips outside the ADA service area will be charged a supplemental fare, up to the maximum. MetroAccess customers currently pay a base fare of $3, however the actual cost to provide that trip is $40.
