The Richland County Transit Board has scheduled a public hearing to take comment of its plan to increase bus fares for the first time in five years.

The hearing will be Wednesday February 26 from 1-5 p.m. in the Regional Planning Commission office in the Community Services Building in downtown Mansfield.

The fares for a single trip would increase by 30 percent, while the day and monthly passes would increase by 25 percent. They would take effect in a month or two.

Meanwhile, the Transit Board is considering installing security cameras at the Station Transit Center bus terminal. Federal funding would cover 80 percent of the security cameras' cost.
