[ARCHIVED] Metra Seeking Feedback On Train Fare Ideas


Metra will hold a series of public open houses next month to gather customer feedback about several potential changes to its fare structure and ticket options.

The first forum will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 1 at the Kane County Government Center, 719 Batavia Ave., Geneva. Customers who cannot attend one of the open houses can review the study recommendations and provide comments online.  Metra is also welcoming public comments sent to via email. Additional study information can be found here.  

The goal of this initiative is to create a flexible fare structure that allows Metra to segment and price markets differently; give Metra more flexibility to increase fare revenue while providing more control over ridership impacts from fare changes; encourage off-peak travel and better use off-peak capacity; and redefine zones to define premium destinations and address perceived inconsistencies.

People can view Metra's full list of proposals on the agency's website.
