Possible fare increase on the horizon: public meeting tonight

show-me-the-moneyToday marks the first of three days of community meetings to talk to riders about a fare increase proposal.

The Capital Metro Board of Directors voted to move forward with a fare increase proposal at their Sept. 28 meeting.

Local bus fare could go from 75 cents to $1 as early as January 2010.
