Transit Authority Proposes Metro Fare Hikes

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority is proposing a fare increase to be spread out over the next eight years.

A public hearing is set for March 29 in downtown LA to discuss the hike. Groups such as the Bus Riders Union oppose the fare increase arguing it's an unfair burden on half a million bus-dependent riders in the city.

KPFK Reporter Shawn Raymundo has more details on the pending fare increases.
