Metra prices going up

The price of riding Metra is going up, but there is a way to get around it, at least for one year.

Starting February 1, Metra fares go up 10 percent. But until then you can stock up on 10-ride tickets, which are good for one year from the date of purchase.

Single ride tickets are also good for a year, and Metra doesn't limit how many of these tickets riders can buy at one time.

Spending some money now could save money in the long run.
