Metra Not Raising Fares

While the CTA has seen it necessary to raise fares, Metra won't be following suit in 2009. Fare hikes might be necessary in 2010 depending on whether or not the state government gives them necessary funding. Metra's on pace to carry a total of 85 million riders this year, an all-time high. Huzzah!
