This summer you'll have to pay more to use public transportation in Maryland. The MTA is increasing fares by $0.10.

The single-fare will increase to $1.80 for regular local bus, light rail, metro subway, and mobility/paratransit. Students will pay $1.30. Officials say the new prices are required by law passed in the Maryland General Assembly.

The rate hike will go into effect June 25.
