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.
