 RTD TO ACCEPT METROLINK TICKETS, PASSES
 ON BUSES STARTING MONDAY, NOV. 2
 LOS ANGELES, Oct. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Metrolink tickets and passes will be accepted on RTD buses beginning Monday, Nov. 2, for commuters going to and from work.
 The RTD will honor Metrolink one-ride, round-trip and 10-ride tickets as well as monthly passes as payment of the base fare of $1.10 on selected RTD services.
 Some restrictions apply: Metrolink fare media will be accepted Monday through Friday only, between the hours of 4 a.m. and 10:30 a.m., and 2:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.; and the fare media used must display a valid date. For tickets, the valid date is the current day while the monthly pass must be dated for the current month.
 Only bus lines operating in the immediate vicinity of Metrolink stations will honor Metrolink fare media.
 "Our purpose is to make it easy for Metrolink commuters to use RTD buses on their trips to and from work," said Alan F. Pegg, RTD general manager.
 "Acceptance on RTD buses of Metrolink tickets and passes should be particularly valuable to rail commuters at points such as downtown Los Angeles, Van Nuys, Glendale, Burbank and Chatsworth, where the train stations will be amply served by RTD buses," Pegg said.
 RTD buses will serve Union Station at the trackside bus terminal, the lower level bus terminal and at bus stops on Alameda, Macy and other nearby streets.
