TARC expected to increase fares

The fare increase TARC riders are facing is expected to become reality Monday.  The TARC Board is scheduled to raise the regular fare to $1.50, an increase of 25 cents a ride.

Rates seniors and students pay will also go up.

TARC is also reducing its service in some areas -- cancelling some routes and running buses less often on others.

The bus service's big problem is the same one all of us are facing -- high gas prices.

TARC's fuel bill has increased from $6 million last fiscal year to more than $10 million for the new fiscal year.
