Cincinnati will keep Sunday bus service
Cincinnati's public transit board has agreed to keep Sunday bus service while urging city officials to approve a fare increase to pay for it. The Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority yesterday dropped an unpopular proposal to save about two and a half million dollars by eliminating Sunday bus service. The board also approved a contract with drivers and mechanics that will cost an additional one million dollars annually. Transit officials say the only remaining option is to raise fares -- a move that City Council has blocked. Fares now are 80 cents during rush hour and 65 cents for off-peak hours. The transit authority operates the system for the city, which covers half of its budget through an earnings tax.
