The Metropolitan Council is seeking public input on a proposal to raise transit fares in the Twin Cities metropolitan area. This would be the first fare increase in nearly a decade and a necessary step to address the increasing costs to provide transit service.
Possible fare increases would affect all regional services, including those operated by Metro Transit, Metro Mobility, the Metropolitan Council (including Transit Link and suburban service) and suburban transit providers (Maple Grove Transit, Minnesota Valley Transit Authority, Plymouth Metrolink and SouthWest Transit). Transit fares, under state law and regional policy, must be set on a regional basis and be consistent across providers.
Ways to comment
The Council will hold public meetings between May 17 and June 13 at locations across the region. In addition, customers can fill out surveys or comment about the proposed fare increase in other ways.
