How much will higher Metro fares impact your own pockets? Adam Tuss at WTOP points out that the transit agency’s Trip Planner tool can now tell you.

If you type in a trip, making sure that you use a date that is after June 27, you will be able to see your new fare.

Catching the 8:15 a.m. train from the Takoma Metro station to Dupont Circle, for instance, will cost you 35 cents extra, rising from $2.65 to an even $3. (Sleeping in ’til 10 or so still pays off, it seems, cutting the hike hit to just 15 cents, from $1.45 to $1.60)
