St. Louis, MO – People are letting Metro know what they think of proposed rate increases.

The agency wants to raise the cost of riding a bus or Metrolink from a $1.25 to $1.50 to help balance its budget.

Officials were at the Belleville, Ill. Metrolink Station this morning (Monday) and will be there again this this afternoon from 4:00-7:30 to get thoughts from rush-hour commuters.

Other meetings are planned for Tuesday, Wednesday, and next week.

People who can't attend a meeting can also email their thoughts to Metro, by emailing 2004fareincrease@metrostlouis.org.
