GreenCity Subscribers:

This special email is in response to loss of an anticipated $500,000 in local property tax revenue and higher than anticipated fuel expenses to date, Citilink is exploring revenue enhancement and cost containment options.  A fare increase of $0.25 per one way passenger trip and other adjustments in the fare structure may be proposed – the first in 17 years.  Service reductions may include, but are not limited to; elimination of Route 5, reducing Route 7 to hourly service on Saturday, reducing Route 1, 2 & 3 to hourly service weekdays and restricting the service area for Citilink ACCESS trips to within ¾ mile of the fixed route service.  Citilink is requesting comments on proposed service changes.
