Here's a real man bite dog story. A transit agency is planning to lower fares.
According to Progressive Railroading, the Utah Transit Authority plans to eliminate two fuel surcharges that were implemented last year. UTA will go ahead with a fare hike that originally was scheduled to take effect January 1, but fares will still be lower because the fuel surcharges were greater than the planned increase. The bottom line: base ticket prices will drop from $2.25 to $2.
However, not all the fare news is good. Altamont Commuter Express fares go up 3 percent in February.
