Metro’s proposed FY2017 Operating Budget includes no fare increases and no service reductions. However, Metro is looking for ways to make bus service faster, more reliable, and more cost-effective by reducing the time buses have to spend waiting at stops. Specifically, Metro is considering a proposal to eliminate the ability to add value to a SmarTrip® card on the bus. To help decide whether to go ahead with this proposal on some or all routes, Metro is seeking public input on how eliminating SmarTrip® fare loading aboard buses might affect the community.
