Rate hike proposal withdrawn for Beloit Transit
A proposed fare increase for the Beloit Transit System has been withdrawn from the 2009 budget.
Director of Transit Michelle Gavin says ridership has been strong, and a fare increase could hurt that. Gavin says everyone has been working hard to find ways to hold fares down.
With a struggling economy, and fluctuating gas prices, Gavin says setting the right rate has been a little like hitting a moving target.
