FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — City Council members voted Monday night to raise bus fares and vehicle taxes to fund extending bus routes and to expand the fleet.
The vehicle tax will be doubled from $5 to $10 per vehicle, Councilman Keith Bates said.
Regular bus fares will go up by 50 cents to $1.50.
The system's on-demand service for disabled people will cost a dollar more. That fare was set at $2.50.
The Council intends for the increased fees to pay for improvements to the Fayetteville Area System of Transit, Bates said.
