The Maryland Transit Administration will increase its transit fares starting Sunday, June 25.

A single-trip fare will increase from $1.70 to $1.80 for local bus, light rail, Metro Subway and mobility/paratransit.

The 10-cent increase is part of a mandated increase by the Maryland General Assembly, and will go into effect before the July 1 deadline as required by the Maryland General Assembly, officials said.

This comes as the MTA rolls out its BaltimoreLink bus routes.
