CHICAGO (WLS) — Metra’s board just approved major changes to its zoning and fare structure.
The changes are part of the $1.1 billion operating budget for next year.
Starting in 2024, the current 10-zone structure, which is based on distance, will be cut down to four zones.

Zone pricing will change for single-use passes and monthly passes. Metra said in many cases, those prices will be lower than the current cost.
The 10-day ride pass will be replaced with a five-day pass.
Full details on all of the changes can be found on Metra’s website.
