Rate Hikes for Citibus? Mayor Tom Martin Says “It Has to Be on the Table”

“Certainly the funding of Citibus is going to be a challenge this year.”

That was Mayor Tom Martin on KFYO during a discussion of the city’s next budget.  The problem, according to the mayor, is a possible combination of higher fuel costs and cutbacks in federal transit aid.

So, as a result…

“One of the things that has to be on the table is an increase in the ride charge of the fares for Citibus,” Martin said.

According to the mayor, a public hearing process is required before a rate hike.  The mayor did not know how much of a rate hike might be needed.
