County Board supports transit fare hike
If you ride the bus to work you'll likely be paying more to do so in the near future. And the Washington County Board of Commissioners is okay with that.
The board voted Tuesday on a resolution to support a Metropolitan Council-imposed 25-cent increase in transit fares that would go into effect Oct. 1. The resolution also expresses support for an additional 50-cent increase that Metro Transit has the option of instituting in 2009, if necessary.
