Metro fare increase

Tuesday, December 15, 2009

On January 1, 2010, King County Metro will implement a 25¢ fare increase for adult peak and off-peak bus service and in senior/disabled fares. This is part of the process of closing a wide funding deficit at Metro, with more actions to follow. The resultant new adult, age 19-64, fares will be: $2.75 for a peak trip that crosses Seattle's city limits (two-zone), $2.25 for a peak trip that doesn't (e.g., a trip from Shoreline/Lake Forest Park to Bellevue), $2.00 for an off-peak trip. Youth riders will have a fare of 75¢ on any trip, whereas Senior/Disabled riders with a valid Regional Reduced Fare Permit can buy a monthly pass for $18.00 (per ride cash fare wasn't listed on Metro's website). For more details, see the Metro website.
