The Sound Transit board today approved fares for the light-rail system set to open in July.
Trips on Link will cost $1.75, plus about a nickel a mile, rounded to the nearest quarter.
The most expensive ride will be $2.50 from downtown to the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, when the airport station opens in December. Also, fares will be charged for trains inside the Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel, but the tunnel will continue to be free for bus riders on King County Metro Transit.
Instead of gates, Sound Transit will use a sort of honor system to collect payments. People will buy tickets (or passes) outside the trains and then be subject to spot checks by transit personnel.
