Metro hosted a live interactive telephone town hall meeting in March to discuss Metro’s Fareless System Initiative. If you were unable to listen or dial in during the event, the recordings of the meeting are available below for you listen to at your convenience.
Metro is currently in the process of looking at how the agency could eliminate fares on Metro operated buses and trains for some riders. The Fareless System Initiative study is exploring a pilot program that would provide fareless rides for low-income riders starting in January 2022 and for K-12 students that could begin as early as August 2021. The pilot would conclude in June 2023.
