Public Hearing Tuesday for Proposed Metro Bus Fare Increase
ST. CLOUD — Metro Bus will hold a public hearing tomorrow as the board of commissioners consider a fare increase.
Metro Bus is looking to increase the cash fare for fixed route service from $1.10 to $1.25. But, they would also eliminate the 25-cent transfer fee.
The 7-Day Pass would go up a dollar to $17 and the 31-Day Pass would go from $45 to $47.
There would also be some minor increases to the Dial-A-Ride fares. If approved, Dial-a-Ride cash fares would increase 30-cents to $2.50, with the 10-Ride Card and 31-Day All-Service Pass each going up three dollars.
The public hearing is at 5:30 p.m. in the St. Cloud City Hall council chambers.
