Alexandria DASH bus considers fare hike

Metro isn't the only transit agency in the D.C. area trying to figure out how to balance its budget. Alexandria Transit, which operates the DASH bus, has scheduled a public hearing for Feb. 4 at 5:30 p.m. in City Council Workroom (Room 2410) of Alexandria City Hall to consider fare and service changes for the budget year starting in July.

They include:
-- Increase in the base fare from $1.25 to $1.50.
-- Increase in the price of monthly DASH Pass from $30 to $35.
-- Increase of 25ยข in rail-to-bus transfer charge.
-- Restructure the AT7 weekday service.
-- Eliminate AT4 midday, evening, and weekend service between Slaters Lane and City Hall.
