Increased fares and frowns on the faces

Bus fares went up today, putting frowns on the faces of the ridership. There is something that might save money for some and I don’t think its widely known. It is possible to buy an Event Pass for $3.50, which is good for six hours and can be used on express buses without incurring the express surcharge. There is also a Day Pass, costing $6.00, which is good for 24 hours from the time it is issued.

Whenever I have a chance to talk to a passenger who seems to be a candidate for one of these the always say they’ve never heard of them. Don’t know if the price of these has gone up with today’s general fare increase [I have today off] but they would still be a bargain for anyone who rides frequently enough.
