Budget proposes raising fares, ending Saturday service

Wichita Transit will hold a public hearing on proposed fare and service changes at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 23rd in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 455 N. Main.

Due to a $1 million budget shortfall, City of Wichita officials are proposing a 50 cent increase for fixed-route fares, a dollar increase for paratransit fares and the elimination of Saturday service for fixed route and paratransit services. The rate structure for passes will increase, accordingly. Rate increase and service change must be approved by the Wichita City Council.

The Transit Department is experiencing an increase in fuel prices, which has contributed to the budget deficit. If the proposed changes are approved by the City Council, the service change will take effect Sept. 3; the fare increases, Sept. 6.

Transit service will be available after the 6:30 public hearing on June 23. Comments can also be mailed to Wichita Transit, 777 E. Waterman, Wichita, KS 67202 or by calling 265-1450.
