BFT Fare Increase

Posted: Updated:

Thursday night, Benton County Transit board members voted by a 6 to 3 margin to increase rates by 10% percent, but not the 18% many had thought.

But, the fares will be looked at again at the end of next year and another 8% increase is planned for January of 2008.

The decision comes after the board heard very little public opposition to raising most of its fares.
