RTA Board approves fare increase – first in 13 years

Newsroom - News & Updates Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority--"CLEVELAND – Pushed by fuel costs that have more than tripled in recent years, the Board of Trustees of the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) today approved the first system-wide fare increase since 1993.

To lessen the impact on customers, the Board approved a two-step increase. Most fares will increase 25 cents on July 1, 2006, and 25 cents on Jan. 7, 2008."

This is not bad at all. In my particular case, a monthly pass will increase $4, from $54 to $58, and this still feels like quite a bargain to me, considering the fact that it cost Gloria $40 yesterday to get the UrbanCombatVehicle to half full.
