Omnitrans proposes discounted fare for veterans, police & firefighters

 

Omnitrans will hold public hearings to gather public comments regarding a proposed fare policy change to provide a discounted fare for Veterans and a free fare for Active Duty Military and Uniformed Police and Fire Officers.

Veteran Fare:
Omnitrans proposes offering Veterans with a discount on the purchases of Local Bus, Express Bus, sbX and OmniGo fares and passes identical to the discount provided to Senior and Disabled riders. This is essentially a 50% discount compared to full fare. No Veteran fare would be offered on Access service. The proposed Veterans fares are: Cash $0.75; Day Pass $2.25; 7-Day Pass $8.00 and 31-Day Pass $27.50.

Active Duty Military & Uniformed Police Officer and Firefighter Fare:
Omnitrans proposes allowing Active Duty Military and Uniformed Police Officers and Firefighters with the opportunity to ride Omnitrans buses for free, excluding Access service.

The proposed fare change will be brought before the Omnitrans Board of Directors for consideration in October 2014. If approved, it will become effective January 2015.

The public is invited to submit comments until Monday, September 22, 2014 by 5:00 P.M. using one of the methods listed below.
