Frequent Metro riders may soon have a new option that could save big money.

The transit agency will recommend creating an unlimited 28-day pass at a board of directors meeting on Thursday.

It would cost $230 and would only be available on Smartrip cards.

The plan comes a day after Metro officials said the upcoming 2013 budget deficit would be $16 million less than expected.
