      Metro fare hikes tentatively approved

      Starting July 1, Metro riders will probably see the price of their trips increasing.

      The Metro board tentatively approved a series of fare hikes Thursday, including an increase during peak travel times.

      A committee approved raising peak fares 5.7 percent. That means the max you would pay for peak fare would be $5.75.

      Passengers who use paper fare cards will pay an extra dollar.

      And bus passengers will pay a dime extra.
