|If you're a LeeTran bus rider or interested citizen, here's your chance to weigh in the county commissioners about their proposed fare increase at the Aug. 19th public hearing.|
LeeTran's fares cover less than 20% of the cost of its service. As part of its effort to balance the budget, the county is considering raising the base cash fare as well as the prices of tickets and passes. Below is a chart that shows current and proposed fares.
LeeTran is gathering public input before a decision is made. You may email your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org; complete a survey on the topic at LeeCountyTownHall.com. LeeTran held five outreach meetings around the county during June and July.
The public hearing before the Board of County Commissioners will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 19 at a 5:00 p.m. in the County Commission Chambers at the Old County Courthouse, 2120 Main Street, Fort Myers.
