LA Metro launches program to cut discounted fares in half

Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (KABC)-In November, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Area Transportation Authority announced that it would resume billing for buses from January 10, 2022. However, the price will be significantly discounted.

Bus commuter Carol Aguinaga said, “I think it’s great because there are so many people out there now that transportation isn’t available due to a pandemic.”

According to the metro, their fares start at half the price:
$ 3.50 for a 1-day pass
$ 12.50 for a weekly pass
$ 50 for a 30-day pass

Drew Phillips, Deputy Chief Financial Officer of LA, said: Metro. “In reality, anything can help in these times.”

Metro also announced the launch of a new regional transportation support program called LIFE, which is easy for low-income fares. This is a program that gives additional discounts to fares that will be resumed soon for those who need it.

“Our website metro.net/life has a complete list of participating operators, requirements, and income thresholds,” says Philips.

Those who are eligible for LIFE will receive a 50% discount on the already discounted fares.

“The pandemic has put a strain on everyone. It’s a lot easier because I’m not a driver, so I’m excited,” said bus commuter Cynthia Sandval.
