Two weeks of free service on the BaltimoreLink bus lines is coming to an end, and fares will return 10 cents higher than before the promotion began.

The increase was part of a statewide hike the Maryland Transit Administration says is required by law. Transit fares rose 10 cents, with regular bus, light rail and Metro subway riders now paying $1.80 for a one-way fare.

The cost is 80 cents for the elderly or disabled. The cost of a weekly pass, however, will decline from $22 to $20.

Fares on the new BaltimoreLink have been free since June 18 as a promotion for the rollout of the $135 million overhaul. The last day of free rides is June 30.
