Metro riders are now seeing higher fare prices, on both buses and on the rails, as the first of two fare hikes has kicked in.
Metro officials say the shortfall for the current year may increase by $25 million.
Metro's chief concern is riders not being aware the increase will happen in two steps. The first fare increase will take place June 27, when peak period Metrorail fares will jump from $1.65 to $1.95, and Metrobus fares will jump to $1.50 for those paying with a SmarTrip card and $1.70 for those paying with cash.
Metro's Trip Planner lets you know what the fare will be after increases go into place later this month.
After hours of discussion on Thursday, the Metro Board voted to increase bus and subway fares.
There was a tense - and at times fiery - debate as Metro's Board of Directors discussed fare increases and service cuts Thursday.
