More opposition is coming from Rochesters disabled community on a proposed fare increase of Lift Line service, a curb-to-curb public transportation service operated by the Rochester Genesee Regional Transportation Authority. Late last month, the RGRTA board approved the fare hike of $6.00 for Lift Line riders. During a forum last night, dozens showed up to voice their concerns. Passenger Ruth Patterson was not alone is protesting the additional charge, saying "there is no way" she will be able to afford a higher fare, being on a fixed income, and living in subsidized housing. Mark Aesch of RTS says the increased fare is necessary to cover the cost of expanding lift line: "What were trying to do is put this service in place for a new group of people to be able to take advantage of this expanded service. For those whom its too expensive, lets work together and see if we cant find ways to make it more affordable." Aesch says the board is willing to work with those who cant afford the higher fare. The Rochester Genesee Regional Transportation Authority will vote on the fare increase next month.
