Public hearing for proposed bus fare increases in Clermont County

CLERMONT COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

The Clermont Transportation Connection (CTC) will be hosting a series of meetings to get the community's input on possible fare increases.

CTC has proposed fare increases because of a growing demand for services and a shrinking operating budget.

"We are projecting an operating deficit for 2012," said CTC Director Ben Capelle. "We have to rely on local contracts, federal grants, and passenger fares to fund CTC. Unfortunately, the way we can keep the system operating is to increase fares."

The proposed rate hike would increase CTC adult door-to-door fares from $4 to $5, senior and disabled fees from $2 to $2.50 and student fares from $3 to $5. The CTC express route fees could increase adult fares from $3 to $4.25; adult fares for local routes from $2 to $4.25. SORTA express routes could increase from $3 to $4.25.
