The Metro board will vote at its May 28 meeting on a motion to offer relief to riders during the COVID-19 response to sell full day, seven-day and 30-day passes at half-price.
The promotional passes would cost #3.50 for a day pass, $12.50 for a seven-day pass and $50 for a 30-day pass. The motion calls for Metro to provide these promotional passes for not less than six months from the date regular boarding practices resume.
The board’s meeting is set for May 28 at 10 a.m. and the public can observe via a virtual online meeting or listen in by phone. Details here.
That gives the public a week to weigh in on the idea with the Metro board. Public comment will be closed during the meeting, so be sure to have your say before then. A list of board members and their contact info can be found here.
“Metro is in the throes of a comprehensive fare system assessment,” said CEO Phil Washington.
Thanks also to Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and his colleagues for the motion and we encourage you to tell him you want to support fare discounts and fare capping.
