On Sunday, July 1, Metro fares and parking fees increased. You can view a summary of all fare changes on Metro’s website, but the best way to determine the new fare for your trip is to use Metro’s Trip Planner and enter a travel date of July 1 or later. (Use July 2 to calculate peak-period fares.)

A few highlighted fare changes:
