The Fort Worth Transportation Authority is proposing to raise many of its fares, effective Dec. 2.
Among the proposed changes:
- Door-to-door service for people with disabilities, which is known as Mobility Impaired Transportation Service (MITS) would increase to $3.25 each way, up from $2.75. T officials said the increase is justified because this category of fare hasn't seen an increase since 2007.
- A single full-fare bus ride would increase to $1.75, up from $1.50, and a round-trip would increase to 3.50, up from $3.
- Reduced bus far for seniors, children and people with disabilities would increase 10 cents to 85 cents per ride.
- Fares for vanpools, and epasses for transit riders who buy annual passes through their employer also would increase.
For those who want to learn more about the proposed changes, public meetings will be held at 7 a.m., noon and 6 p.m. Sept. 11 at the Intermodal Transportation Center, 1001 Jones St. in downtown Fort Worth.
The T board will be asked to consider raising the fares during its October board meeting.
