RTA Finance Committee discussing the fare increase and route cuts
This year, RTA's announced a budget that includes plans to raise a one-way fare from $2.25 to $2.50 and an all day pass from $5 to $5.50. Fares for one-way transportation services for people with disabilities will increase from $2.25 to $3.50. Meanwhile, RTA plans to cut bus service by 1.3 percent. This would hurt working families who are already struggling to make ends meet. It would also set the region back in becoming more sustainable and more economically vibrant.
RTA's Finance Committee decided to table the hearings knowing the impact fare increases and bus route cuts would have on riders. This month, The Finance Committee will take up the discussion again.
