CHICAGO (WICS) —
If you're traveling to Chicago next year, prepare to spend more on transportation.
The new Metra budget includes fare increases and service cuts.
Beginning February 1, Metra weekend passes will rise from $8 to $10. Monthly Metra tickets will increase between $9 and $12.50. Ten-ride tickets will go up from between $4.25 and $7.75.
City officials say there could be additional cuts unless there are improvements in state funding.
