Metro is studying how we could eliminate fares on our buses and trains and we want to hear from you! We’re inviting you to join our Telephone Town Hall on March 31st from 6:30 – 7:30 pm to share your opinions on how a fareless system could impact the way you use transit.
The Fareless System Initiative study is underway, and a leading concept has emerged – an 18-month fareless pilot program that could provide free rides on Metro buses and rail service for low-income riders starting in January 2022, and expanding to all K-12 students in August 2022. The purpose of the pilot is to test the feasibility of a fully fareless system. At the conclusion of the pilot in June 2023, Metro will evaluate the possibility of a fully fareless system. Metro invites you to learn more about this concept. The Town Hall meeting will also be an opportunity for you to share your feedback.
There are three ways to participate on March 31st at 6:30pm:
