PACE last paratransit fare increase was in 2009, so with a 25 cent a ride increase to $3.25 per ride was approved by the PACE Board of Directors. The 25 cent increase also will be in effect for a PACE fixed route bus ride, from $1.75 to $2 which allows 2 transfers in a 2 hour time limit. PACE also has no service cuts for 2018. While any fare increase is never welcomed, hopefully it will be another 8 years or more before Senior and Disabled paratransit service riders will have another fare increase. In the meantime PACE needs to improve its 'real' on time performance which has plagued the service over the last couple of years.
