Metro price hike may impact Ariz. State students, staff

TEMPE — Arizona State University officials are preparing for cost increases for its U-Pass and employee Platimum Pass, which the university subsidizes in part, in the wake of a plan by Valley Metro to raise fares, according to the Downtown Devil.
