DDOT Weighs Potential Fare Hikes

The D.C. Department of Transportation will hold two public meetings next week on proposed Metro fare increases. The 6:30 p.m. meetings will be Nov. 14 at the Jackson Graham Building, 600 Fifth St. NW, and Nov. 15 at St. Luke’s Center, 4923 East Capitol St.

DDOT is proposing increases of up to 10 cents on cash bus fares, from $1.25 to $1.35, and of up to 30 cents on minimum peak train fares, from $1.35 to $1.65. The maximum peak train fare would increase by up to 80 cents, from $3.90 to $4.70.

The potential elimination of paper bus transfers within one year also will be considered.

The changes could take effect as early as Jan. 6. More information is available at
