Metro's fare surcharge falling short
According to a new Metro report, the extra dime per trip that the transit agency began to charge riders this spring isn't making up for the emergency budget shortfall it was supposed to help solve, the Washington Examiner reports.
In fact, the agency says it has an even bigger hole than it forecast. Instead of a $40 million shortfall for the entire year, the latest monthly financial report shows Metro is $54.2 million off, with three months left to make up the difference.
