Public Process Starts on Bus Fare Increases

By Lee Nichols, October 13, 2009, 3:14pm, Newsdesk

Last month, the Capital Metro Board of Directors approved a staff proposal to bump the scheduled August fare increases up to January. Before they can make a final vote on that, however, they are required to gather public input. The schedule for that is after the jump (sorry, the first event has already passed):
