Metra is saying no to fare hikes.The suburban commuter train service announced Friday it will not seek a fare increase next year. Metra's also hoping to avoid a price hike in 2010.

But it's looking to Springfield to pass a bill to help trains and buses stay in good condition and add capacity to its already over-crowded system.
