Metra board OKs budget with service cuts, fare hikes in 2018
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.
