Subway Fares May Rise 30 Cents

Metro's Proposal On Increases Heads For Public Debate

 

Minimum rush-hour subway fares could rise as much as 30 cents, bus fares could go up a dime and parking fees could increase by $1.15 under a plan agreed to by Metro board members yesterday that now must go before the public.

 

The proposal is designed to spur public debate, and board members said the amounts of the suggested increases are likely to change by December, when the board is to make a final decision after a series of public hearings. Under Metro rules, the board can only lower the proposed changes, not raise them. New fares would go into effect early next year.
