Reminder: Bus fares go up in a week

A reminder from Metro:

King County Metro Transit is reminding customers that bus fares for adults will
increase by 25 cents starting Sunday, Feb 1.

A two-zone trip taken during peak-commute times will cost $2.50, a one-zone trip
$2.00, and the off-peak fare will be $1.75. New monthly passes also reflect the
increase. Youth and senior/disabled fares will not change.

This fare increase is one of several measures being undertaken by Metro to help
maintain its existing system. A weak economy, record fuel prices in mid-2008 and
falling sales tax revenues have resulted in a significant budget shortfall for the
agency. These factors have also forced Metro to cut costs.
