Frequent Metro users catching a break on fares

Must Read

The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority has lowered the cost of its unlimited-ride passes to address the needs of travelers who are no longer necessarily commuting five days per week.

“As gas prices remain high and people continue to increase travel and commute to work more often, lowering the price of unlimited passes makes Metrorail and Metrobus an even more attractive option for work and pleasure travel throughout the region,” said Metro board chair Paul Smedberg in touting the change, which went into effect July 1.

Unlimited-pass prices vary by distance traveled and are now based on customers taking 32 trips per month, down from 36 trips per month, with the prices declining from the previous $72-$216 to $64-$192. (Passengers taking trips beyond 32 in a given month will get them without additional charge.)

Passes can be purchased online, at fare vending machines and at participating retail locations across the region.
