Park Ridge Metra Fares Increase: What Will Tickets Cost You?

The price of the 10-ride ticket is no longer discounted.


Metra riders are no longer getting a discount for purchasing a 10-ride fare.

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. The change was made to help fund capital improvement projects, the Park Ridge Herald-Advocate reports. The policy went into effect Feb 1. 

Park Ridge Metra commuters from both the Park Ridge and Dee Road stations will now pay $42.50 for a 10-ride pass, or $4.50 for a one-way ticket. Monthly passes are $121, and weekend tickets are $7.

Ten-ride tickets purchased between Nov. 17 and Jan. 31 are valid through Feb. 28. 

What do you think about the Metra fare increase? Will you take Metra less?

If you take the train to work, I would think most commuters would have enough sense to stick with it instead getting stuck in traffic and even if you take metra for recreation puposes, it's probably better than paying for a high price parking garage.
