Poll: What are Your Thoughts on Metro’s Proposed Fares, Service Changes?

Metro is seeking feedback on its proposed budget for the next fiscal year.

The proposal includes expanded service hours and fare increases during peak service hours. Some suggestions under consideration include:

  • Metro will close at midnight Monday through Thursday and stay open until 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday
  • Metrobus customers who pay or load their SmarTrip card with cash will pay $0.25 more per trip
  • A flat fare on weekends that will be “simple” and “easy-to-remember,” according to Metro
  • Elimination of low-ridership routes for Metrobus

Metro users can complete an online survey and provide comments. Open houses are also planned in Arlington, New Carrollton, and the District.

The proposed budget is available online.
