TWITTER CHAT ABOUT BUS RATE HIKE

I just got emailed this article about how UTA is hosting a Twitter chat about their proposed bus fare increases. You can read about the bus fare increase here. Under the current proposal, basic adult fare will rise from $2 to $2.50 by 2013. An adult monthly pass will go from $67 to $83.75. UTA also proposes to expand the scope of the Horizon discount card, and to raise the fuel surcharge threshold from $3 to $4 (meaning that they will not raise the price due to fuel costs until diesel costs $4 a gallon).

Is this fair? Does this proposal accurately reflect the changing costs of running a bus company? I'll leave that up to you.

Tweet UTA (@rideuta) tomorrow (Thursday) from 11 am to 12 noon.

All comments, via email, snail mail, or Twitter, will become part of the public record.  Just sayin'.
