The City is ready to approve a transit fare increase that will be effective January 1st, 2009.

Regular cash adult fares will go up 5 cents and now be $2.30 per ride. Reduced and senior cash fares will also go up 5 cents. Handi Transit and Bus passes are also expected to rise.

The hike in price is to cover rising wage and benefit costs as well as the spike in price for diesel fuel.
