Richland County Transit proposes raising its fares for the first time in five years, to keep-up with expenses and maintain service at current levels. The transit board was told Monday morning adult single-trip fares would increase from a $1.50 to $2, day passes would increase from $4 to $5, and monthly passes would increase from $40 to $50. The fares for seniors, the disabled, and students would remain at half those prices. The fare increases would generate a projected $46,000 a year in additional revenue for R-C-T. At least one public hearing will be held, probably in March, and a target date for starting the fare increases is April first.
