Richland County Transit's fare increase has been in effect since May first, but having to pay extra money has not driven riders away. The transit board got a status report this morning on ridership since the fare increase, and was told it had no great impact. Meanwhile, the transit board continues waiting for Ontario to renew paying its $30,000 a year subsidy, after taking several years off due to a budget crunch. While it waits, R-C-T has pulled some of its service. No cut-off date has been set for Richland County Transit to remove its buses from Ontario, as it may do if the subsidies are not restored.
