Whatcom Transportation Authority is taking public comment on proposed changes to how it collects fares. No fare increase is planned.
The transit agency proposes adding a $3 day pass and a 10-ride ticket for $9. WTA would eliminate tokens and free-ride coupons, with free day passes made available to low-income riders.
Comments must be received by 3 p.m. March 20. Submit comments via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, call 360-715-4500 and leave a message, or write to Rick Nicholson, director of service development, 4111 Bakerview Spur Road, Bellingham, WA 98226.
People can direct questions to Nicholson at 360-738-4585 or email@example.com.
The WTA board of directors will hold a public hearing on the fare options at 8 a.m. Thursday, March 21, at the County Courthouse, 311 Grand Ave., Bellingham.
