Bus Fares Could Go Up, Obvious Stated
The Collegian is reporting that CATA’s fare may go from $1.25 to $1.50 in the near future. While this won’t affect students who only ride the loop, those who take a trip to Walmart and Wegmans on occasion will have to pay a bit extra.
As one insightful student said:
I don’t think anyone riding the bus will be supportive of it.
I ride the bus maybe once a month, so I know that even if the fare goes up, I’m probably not going to care.
A decision won’t be made on the issue until March, and there will be a chance for community members to speak out on the issue. While the rate increase won’t have much effect on students, I think those who are actual residents of State College and rely on the bus to get to work may have stronger opinions.
