As required by the Transportation Infrastructure Investment Act of 2013, MDOT MTA will increase transit fares effective Sunday, June 26, 2022. This increase was scheduled to go into effect on June 27, 2021, but was mitigated by Governor Larry Hogan through use of funds from the American Relief Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA).
Single-trip fares will increase from $1.90 to $2.00 for Local Bus, Light RailLink and Metro SubwayLink. MobilityLink single-trip fares will increase from $2.10 to $2.20. MDOT MTA encourages riders to purchase monthly fare passes which will increase from $74 to $77. The monthly pass provides savings, particularly for Marylanders using transit every day to get to work, shopping and entertainment.
MDOT MTA also offers CharmFlex, a discounted fare option to accommodate Marylanders who are returning to on-site work on a more flexible or hybrid work schedule. Launched in August 2021, CharmFlex three- and 10-day passes can be used on consecutive or non-consecutive days, and are valid for up to 12 months after purchase. Using CharmFlex, riders pay about 15% less compared to the cost of a day-pass or single-trip fare. As of June 26, the three-day CharmFlex pass will cost $11.70 and the 10-day pass will cost $39.10.
