Go Ahead, Try Riding the LA Metro. It's Easy!...
Metro has introduced a new fare structure as of September 15, 2014. At first it looks like an increase, since the base fare has gone up, but eliminating the need to pay for every segment of a trip actually makes it more economical for people who have to change trains or transfer between trains and buses. So the cost for a trip from Hollywood to downtown went from $1.50 to $175, but the cost for a trip from Long Beach to Pasadena via Downtown LA went from $4.50 to $1.75. Additional supplements still apply for Metro Silver Line and Express buses.
