Jacksonville, FL — For the first time in 7 years, the Jacksonville Transportation Authority has approved raising fares on almost all of its services.
JTA's Board of Directors adopted the changes during a special meeting on Tuesday. Before making the changes, JTA says it held two public meetings this week and another eleven back in June. This is in addition to outreach that was conducted at their transit hubs in June and July.
The new fares will apply to all JTA fixed-bus routes, First Coast Flyer BRT Lines, the St. Johns River Ferry, and ReadiRide Service. The changes are reflected below:
Fares for Connexion and Connexion Plus paratransit services and those for seniors (65 and older) will not be changing. JTA customers can also still get discounts by buying fares through the MyJTAapp.
These new fares will take effect September 30th.
In addition to the fare changes, JTA says it also adopted a new automatic fare indexing policy that establishes a more predictable mechanism for setting fare changes every two years.
