Transit & Parking Commission
Monday, Nov. 24, 6 p.m.
The commission holds a public hearing on proposals to raise Metro's cash fares. One proposal would increase it by 25 cents, to $1.75. Another, backed by Mayor Dave, would raise it 50 cents, to $2. The fare increase would tentatively go into effect in March. Monday night's meeting is a hearing only; the TPC will make a final decision at its meeting on Dec. 9. Bus advocates are planning to hold a rally half an hour before the meeting in front of Monona Terrace.
