Pace's 2018 budget, which is balanced and maintains current service levels, was approved by the Pace Board of Directors in November and passed by the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) Board of Directors on December 14, 2017.

A $0.25 fare increase on regular fixed route ($.50 on premium routes) and ADA paratransit service fares is included as a budget balancing action to address an almost $12 million shortfall caused by a reduction in state support and lagging sales tax revenue. Also included are a corporate hiring freeze and other administrative cost-containment measures that will not affect service operations.

The fare increase will go into effect on January 1, 2018. ADA Paratransit Service passengers should note that $3 tickets will not be available for purchase after Friday, December 15, 2017, and will be accepted without a surcharge during a one month grace period ending January 31, 2018. After that, a surcharge of $0.25 will be required if paying with a $3 ticket. $3.25 ticket books will be available for purchase beginning December 16, 2017.


Thank you for your support.
