Help Metro simplify bus fares

Friday, April 21, 2017

Metro is considering two options for changing bus fares for adults to make them easier to understand, speed up boarding, and reduce fare disputes.

We want to hear which option you prefer.

No changes are being considered for youth, senior, disability, ORCA LIFT, or Access fares.

Our current adult fare structure includes extra charges for travel during weekday peak commute hours (6-9am and 3-6pm) and for trips that cross a zone boundary during those peak hours. Riders can pay $2.50, $2.75 or $3.25, depending on when and how far they travel.

We’re considering two options for making adult fares simpler:
  • Option 1: A single $2.75 fare for travel any time, any distance 
  • Option 2: A $3 peak-period fare and a $2.50 off-peak fare, with no extra charge for two-zone travel 

Please tell us which you prefer by filling out an online survey by May 5 or participating in a public meeting on April 25 or 27.
