Since Metro recently changed its fare policy for MetroAccess, a transit alternative for the elderly and disabled, those customers not only are complaining about the higher price but how the price varies depending on the time of day.
Oct. 17, 2012 Ty Bush, 49, a MetroAccess user who has been wheelchair-bound since 2005, returns to her apartment building after a trip to her doctor that took six hours, including the time spent at the doctor's office and a short stop for lunch. She says she cannot afford a $7 MetroAccess trip to go to her doctor in Rockville. She is left with no choice and has to take the long trip by bus and rail.
