The City and Borough of Juneau Assembly Finance Committee approved a request to increase farebox rates for adults riding Capital Transit buses to $2.
Currently, the adult fare is $1.50.
If approved by the full Assembly, the fares would go into effect July 2.
“It’s a 20 percent increase in some fares and zero increase in others,” Kirk Duncan, city public works director, said. Fares for passengers aged 6 – 18, will not go up, he said.
“(It’s) not something we want to do, it is an economic reality,” Duncan said.
