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.

Southern Kitsch and Sweet Tea at Cracker Barrel

After several months of anticipation, I was finally able to check out State College’s new Cracker Barrel on its opening day. Located at 215 Colonnade Blvd., there are few surprises at the chain’s new location. With rows of rocking chairs out front, checker boards and a game of peg solitaire at every table, I could have been at any franchise location in the country — not that that’s a bad thing.
