BALTIMORE — The Maryland Department of Transportation and the Maryland Transit Administration will increase transit fares by 10 cents on light rail, metro subway, and other transit systems this summer.

The fare increase, as required by the Transportation Infrastructure Investment Act of 2013, will take effect on June 25. The law mandates that if the consumer price index increases in the previous two years, the Maryland agencies are required to increase their transit fares by increments of 10 cents for local rail and bus systems.

Fare increases for the agency’s Maryland Area Regional Commuter rail services will occur every five years and is not included in this summer’s fare hike.

Single-trip fares on light rail and other transit systems will increase from $1.70 to $1.80.

The agency oversees Baltimore’s light rail, metro subway, and Maryland Area Regional Commuter rail services.
