CATS officials consider changing bus fares
BATON ROUGE - The cost of riding a bus in Baton Rouge could be changing.
Capital Area Transit System officials are re-evaluating fares. The changes being considered include eliminating transfer fees and raising the price of daily, weekly and monthly passes.
CATS interim Chief Executive Officer Bob Mirabito told some members of the board on Thursday he would like to streamline the fare system to make it easier for riders by eliminating 25-cent transfer fees.
Getting from one destination to another on a CATS bus often requires two, and sometimes three, bus transfers. Mirabito suggested removing bus transfer fees and increasing the cost of a one-way pass.
