Skagit Transit fares raised

It is now more expensive to take Skagit Transit, the local green and white bus. The fare increases the Skagit Transit board of directors passed last summer took effect Jan. 1. This is the first fare increase since 2008.

One way adult fixed route fares are still $1, but one day passes are $3, a $1 increase. Transfers are no longer free. Staff recommend buying one day passes for multiple rides. The 31-day pass is $30, up from $25.

Youth and disabled fares remain 50% of the regular price.

County connector fares on the routes 80X and 90X will not change.

Skagit Transit will soon introduce a new electronic payment method called TouchPass. Riders can visit http://www.skagittransit.org/TP for more information.
