The old brick-lined tunnels execute a sharp turn along the way as the route
switches from under 8th St. to under Washington Ave. It seems
strange to contemplate that steam engines worked underground here once upon a
MetroLink fare is $2.25, with an all-day
pass available for $7.50. Like other modern systems, ticket
machines are available at each stop, and proof of payment is required once on
board. Fare inspection seems to be somewhat more frequent than on
many other systems.
