Effective June 29, 2014, Metro will be raising fares for Metro Rail and Metro Bus.
The maximum monthly allowable benefit limit remains $130 per month for 2014.
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO?
If your route has a new fare or your commute will be changing as a result of the WMATA fare changes, please submit a change application to correctly certify your new commuting costs. The application may be found at https://mtbp.whs.mil/application. It is important to update your commuting expenses to reflect your total cost, because if Congress increases the monthly benefit limit, this cost will be used to adjust your benefit amount provided.
Metro's new rates can be found using the Metro Trip Planner available at http://www.wmata.com/. Please be sure to set the Trip Planner's date to June 30, 2014 or later and adjust the "Leaving After" time to your normal commuting time.
