The City of Everett has officially announced a fare increase for riders on Everett Transit at the 1st of the year. Here’s a short press release from Kate Reardon…

Everett Transit’s fares will be changing, effective Jan. 1, 2013. Fare categories will increase by 25-cents, except for commuter and para transit fares. The new fares will be as follows:

•Adult, regular fare – $1 per trip (or $36 for a monthly pass)
•Youth (ages 6-18) – 75 cents per trip (or $27 for a monthly pass)
•Senior citizens (age 65+) and Regional Reduced Fare Permit (RRFP) holders – 25 cents per trip

A $9 monthly pass, good for Everett Transit rides only, will be made available for RRFP holders.

Everett Transit will waive the fee for ORCA cards to citizens of Everett, proof of residency required, provided a minimum value of $1 (.50 for seniors/RRFP holders) is loaded onto the card. This offer is valid from Nov. 15, 2012 – Jan. 15, 2013.

For additional details regarding the fare change or how to obtain an ORCA card, please visit www.Facebook.com/Everett.Transit or call customer service at 425-257-7777.

Everett Transit is committed to offering reliable and affordable transportation throughout Everett. The fare change is projected to increase revenue by approximately $400,000 annually, which will offset rising costs such as fuel, which has risen by 68 percent since 2009. Everett Transit provided over 2.3 million trips in 2011.
