DASH Bus Fares Up 50 Percent Effective Today
DASH public bus riders are seeing a steep fare hike on their routes today. OK, steep only as a matter of percentage as the L.A. DOT-operated busses increase fares from 35 cents to 50 cents.
But who can't scrape up a few extra nickels each day? After all, as LADOT conveniently announced on this week, commuters are more satisfied than ever with its services.
Today's hike competes a two-year planned fare hike from 25 cents.
