Shuttle Bus Fares Increase In Southern Santa Barbara County

Posted on Monday, July 2, 2012 12:43pm

It now costs twice as much to use a popular shuttle bus service on the South Coast.
Electric shuttle bus service in Carpinteria, and Santa Barbara has gone from 25 cents, to 50 cents.

Metropolitan Transit District officials say one of the big reasons for the hike is the loss of redevelopment fund money which used to help subsidize the service.

The financially strapped state shut down redevelopment agencies across the state as part of its effort to reallocate tax revenues.
