CARY — The town is hosting a series of public sessions to get feedback from residents about proposed fare increases for the C-Tran public-transportation system.
If approved, the hikes in Cary would bring a 31-day local bus pass from $36 to $54, while individual rides would go from $1 to $1.50.
The change could also eliminate free fixed-route rides for seniors, while increasing point-to-point fares between 25 percent and about 50 percent.
The Cary Town Council is expected to consider fare increases in October.
Here’s the schedule for the sessions:
• 2 to 4 p.m. Tuesday, July 16, at the Cary Senior Center, 120 Maury Odell Place.
• 7 to 10 a.m., 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 23, at the Cary Depot on North Academy Street.
• 8 to 10 a.m., 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 7, at Cary Towne Center, 1105 Walnut St.
