The news of a hunger strike protesting July's fare hike has Metro scrambling to clarify what's going on. The Bus Riders Union is not happy with July's fare hike and are camping out across from Union Station until Thursday's Metro Board of Directors meeting, but that doesn't mean fare hikes will be discussed. "The Metro Media Relations office is refuting the assertion by the Bus Riders Union that the fare increase will be on tomorrow’s Metro Board agenda for discussion or vote," an agency statement read. "There is no action item on the agenda."
