Regional Transit officials announced Wednesday that the RT Board of Directors has approved a 25 cent increase in the basic fare…to $2.25.

A daily pass will go up by $1...to $6 and a monthly pass will cost $100 - that’s a $15 increase. 

RT officials say they had to raise prices to deal with an $18 million loss in state funds. And they note, service reductions were avoided. 

The new prices take effect on January 1st.
