After four years without an increase, the $1.00 Fairfax Connector bus fare is going to be increasing (PDF). Public hearings were held today and will be held next Saturday. More information on the website.
In general, bus fares are being increased to coincide with the WMATA fare structure, including the elimination of paper transfers. Regular cash fare increases from $1.00 to $1.35, and for Smartrip it will now be $1.25. See this fare chart. Fairfax County has also proposed to follow WMATA’s lead for future bus fare increases.
County staff will accept your public comments at FairfaxConnector (at) fairfaxcounty (dot) gov until 4pm on Friday November 14th.
