Metro will move forward with a previously announced plan to increase fares and reduce service as part of an effort to balance its operating budget for the coming fiscal year.

In a statement released Monday, Metro General Manager Paul J. Wiedefeld acknowledged that the austere budget is "tough medicine for the region" but said it's necessary to keep the transit agency out of dire financial straits.
