Starting today Metro fares up in Washington, D.C.


Not much an Awesome News, but it is something  you all need to know before you get a surprise taking the metro. Starting today, Metrorail customers who use a paper ticket will pay 25 cents more per trip than customers who use a plastic SmarTrip card.

Metro will also start adding a 20 cent additional charge during so-called “peak-of-the peak” periods. Those are weekdays between 7:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. and afternoons between 4:30 p.m. and 6 p.m.

The afternoon peak-of-the-peak increases take effect on Monday. The morning peak-of-the-peak increases are expected to take effect by the end of August.
