La Grange, Western Springs Metra Fare Hike: What Will Tickets Cost You?
In addition to the hikes, the price of the 10-ride ticket is no longer discounted.
The Metra Board of Directors voted last month to change the cost of the once discounted 10-ride pass to be equivalent to the price of 10 one-way fares, according to Metra.
The La Grange Road and Stone Avenue stations lie within the Metra C zone, meaning that fares to or from downtown Chicago (Union Station) will increase to $42.50 for a 10-ride pass ($4.25 per one-way ride).
Meanwhile, the Western Springs station, in the Metra D zone, will see fares increase to $47.50 for a 10-ride pass to or from Chicago ($4.75 per one-way ride).
Commuters from the G zone to downtown Chicago will pay $62.50 for a 10-ride pass, or $6.25 for a one-way and commuters from the E zone will now pay $52.50 for a 10-ride pass, or $5.25 for a one-way.
Ten-ride tickets purchased between Nov. 17 and Jan. 31 are valid through Feb. 28.
