The Lubbock City Council approved a Citibus fare increase last month. The twenty-five percent fare increase will be effective Monday, November 5. Citibus U and CitiKids passes will increase effective January 1, 2008.

The decision to raise fares was not made lightly. The City Council heard public comment regarding the fare increase during the City's budge hearings. In addition, the Lubbock Public Transit Advisory Board received public comment at two public hearings. The fare increase is a result of Citibus losing federal operating assistance when the Lubbock Urbanized Area exceeded 200,000 population.
