Opinions are sought on shuttle changes

May 21, 2006

The Corridor Transportation Corp. has begun a 30-day period for public comment on potential fare increases that will affect Connect-A-Ride Service and potential changes to its G and H routes. The G route connects Laurel and College Park; Columbia travelers can take the E from The Mall in Columbia to Laurel Mall to connect to the G. The H route connects Laurel to Greenbelt. The proposed fare increase and route changes are scheduled to take effect July 3.

A public meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. June 1 in the first-floor conference room at Corridor Transportation Corp. headquarters, 312 Marshall Ave., Suite 104, Laurel.

The proposed increase would raise the base fare from $1.50 to $1.75; fares for people with disabilities and senior citizens will remain 75 cents. The new fare structure would include a 25-cent transfer fee with each transfer for those with disabilities and seniors, and a 50-cent transfer fee for others. Transfers will continue to be valid for a two-hour period.

Information on the proposed changes or to request special accommodations (by Thursday) for the public meeting: 800-270-9553.

Comments will be accepted at the meeting or can be sent by June 15 to CTC, 312 Marshall Ave., Suite 104, Laurel 20707. They can also be e-mailed to support@ baltwashchamber.org.
