Spokesperson Judy Pardonnet says Metra is re-examining fares for the A and B zones. Those are in Chicago and some of the nearby suburbs. The original proposal called for a higher percentage increase in those zones than in other areas.

A number of lawmakers and community groups had complained the fare increases were unfair, especially for south side residents.
