Rapid management approved the transit line’s first fare increase in seven years.
The increase applies to all fares in the Rapid transit system, and takes effect on October 1.
It includes a single adult rate increase of a quarter to $1.75. Monthly passes will go from $40 to $47, and a reduced-fare monthly pass increases from $26 to $30.
Public comment was collected earlier this summer, with residents and organizations expressing concerns over affordability – especially agencies that provide fare vouchers for low and fixed-income residents.
