It’s still a bargain compared to London’s UK6 (about US $12) day pass, but the Los Angeles Metro daypass goes up to $5
next week in July. The Times has an article on it, which covers a lot of the bare bones. This is the first across the board hike in a decade…and many of the regular riders say they cannot afford it. And the hikes come despite the state Senate’s rejection of Ahnuld’s $1.3B transit cuts. (Did I mention how hypocritical it is for him to talk about the environment while slashing public transit budgets? Rigging a Hummer up to hydrogen is not environmentalism!)
Anyways, if you’re riding mass transit next month, check out the MTA site for fare changes, and carry your $$ accordingly.
