(Bus fares going up, services to increase)….The ICTC met Wednesday.
The Imperial County Transportation Commission discussed the increases and their budget. The spending plan was balanced, and called for increasing services to the IVC Express and on Saturdays. It also called for reducing travel time from Calexico to El Centro. That route currently takes over an hour. They want to reduce the time to around 35 minutes. The increased fares approved by the commission adds .25 to local zone fares and Imperial Valley College fares. Senior fares will go up .15. Imperial Valley Transit Access local zone fares will increase .50 cents, as will regional zone fares. The new rates will be implemented in September.
