VCTC FARE INCREASE PASSENGER SURVEY

The Ventura County Transportation Commission (VCTC) is considering a two-phased FARE PRICE increase for its bus service.  

The proposed PHASE 1 fare change would be in JANUARY 2019. 
The proposed PHASE 2 fare change would be in JANUARY 2020.

VCTC is considering this proposal due to the steady increase in operating costs without any increase in fare prices since 2011.  As part of the planning process, VCTC is asking for public comment about the proposal using this short survey.  If you prefer to email comments - send an email to ridercomments@goventura.org.
