The COTA Board of Trustees approved a fare adjustment plan that will go into effect on January 1st. A single local trip will rise in price from $1.75 to $2.00 while an express trip will rise from $2.50 to $2.75. A one-day pass will rise from $4.00 to $4.50 and a seven-day pass will rise from $22.00 to $25.00. Local transfers will remain free.
Additionally, the existing monthly pass system that operates on calendar months will change over to a new 31-day pass system that allows riders to purchase a pass during any day of the month that is good for a full 31-days of travel. The cost of the monthly pass system will rise from $55 to $62 for local travel and from $78 to $85 for express travel.
