City Council right to keep bus fares at current level
TUCSON -- Last night, the City Council (except Mayor Bob Walkup) actually listened to citizens by voting to not increase San Tran bus fares.
Just two years ago voters approved the RTA sales tax increase, which was supposed to include money for transit. The RTA is collecting more money than it projected, so where are the funds to fully support Sun Tran?
People need a break during these tough economic times, and keeping fares where they are now is the right thing to do.
