Proposed Increase to Unlimited Ride Pass Rate
Final Decision Delayed until Spring

The City of Madison Executive 2015 Operating Budget provided for the funding of $96,300 to provide Wi-Fi services on Metro buses, contingent on the Madison Transit and Parking Commission’s (TPC) approval of a fare increase of $ 0.05 per ride, to be applied to unlimited ride pass program rides.

This would affect the following pass programs: UW Employees, UW Hospital Employees, UW ASM students, Madison College, Edgewood College, Dane County employees, City of Madison employees, St. Mary's and Meriter.

The TPC held a public hearing in December 2014 to consider this fare increase. In January, the TPC decided to postpone a decision on this fare increase until March or April to give staff more time to research costs and types of equipment needed to successfully implement this service for its customers.
