Valley Metro bus and rail fares increased Wednesday, July 1.

Riders are asked to plan ahead, especially for purchasing an all-day bus fare. Passengers who purchase an all-day pass at a light rail platform fare vending machine or at one of 80 select locations and stores prior to boarding a local bus can save $1.75 off of the on-board bus full-fare price.

The cost for a one-ride trip on the Valley Metro local bus, METRO light rail and the LINK bus (limited-stop service between Superstition Springs Center and Sycamore Station in Mesa) will now cost $1.75, and an all-day pass is $3.50. Purchasing an all-day pass at the farebox on the local/LINK bus will cost $5.25.
