For the fourth year in a row, Metra is raising the cost of travel for commuters. The increases approved last, year go into effect Thursday.

“It’s a never ending struggle for everybody who has to take public transportation,” complained Doriana Marquez, who alternates between using Metra and the CTA and is now paying more for both services.

Other users wonder what they’re getting in exchange for the increased costs pointing to the transportation systems deficiencies.
