FORT WORTH -- Starting in December, it will cost more to ride The T.
Citing growing transit needs and higher costs, the Fort Worth Transportation Authority board of directors on Wednesday approved higher fares for most bus and rail passengers and for mobility impaired services.
The changes go into effect on December 2, the first increases in five years.
Local bus fares are going up 25 cents to $1.75 for a single ride and will increase 50 cents for a day pass, which will cost $3.50.
Single fares for Trinity Railway Express Zone 1 riders (within Tarrant County) will actually decrease from $3.50 to $2.50, and a day pass for the same zone will drop from $7 to $5.
There will be no change to Regional TRE single-ride and day pass fares, but a monthly Regional pass, which permits travel to Dallas County and on the DART transit network, will increase 34 percent, from $120 to $160.
