Metro riders will have to keep a little more change handy in the new year. King County Metro Transit is increasing fares starting in January 2011.
Beginning Jan. 1, all adult Metro riders will see a 25 cent fare increase. Fares for other Metro products, such as passes and ticketbooks, will also increase. Youth fares will remain unchanged.
Fares will also be changing for Access customers. Access fares will increase by 25 cents and monthly passes will cost $45.
Metro-only annual and monthly reduced fare passes will no longer be sold, though existing ones will continue to be honored until they expire.
