Metrolink is considering hiking fares even higher.The Southern California Regional Rail Authority board already approved a three-percent fare increase that went into affect back in August.

But board says it needs to raise fares by an additional three to six percent.

It says the current economic situation has caused fewer people to ride the trains, so even with August's fare increase, they're seeing a drop in revenue, while expenses are going up.
