2013 Proposed Public Transportation Fare Increase
The Anchorage Assembly will be considering an increase in People Mover and AnchorRIDES fares under either Plan A or Plan B's proposed 2013 budget.
On People Mover, regular adult cash fare would increase from $1.75 to $2.00. Reduced fare would be eliminated and a new Half Fare would be implemented. Those qualifying for reduced fare would pay 50% of the full adult fare. Youth and veterans would be added to the Half Fare category. Adult 30-day passes would increase from $55.00 to $60. Those qualifying for the half fare program would pay $30 for a 30-day pass.
AnchorRIDES fares in the core area would increase from $3.00 to $4.00.
