No Fare Increase, Changes to Route 11

Post Date:06/13/2018 12:15 PM

On Tuesday, May 29th, the Fayetteville City Council rejected a proposal to increase bus fares.   The proposal had been made as an effort to balance the city budget without raising property taxes.  In a related vote, the City Council voted 8-1 to cancel a portion of bus route 11, ending that route’s service to Fayetteville State University and Murchison Road. Route 12 also serves Murchison and the university and will continue to do so.  According to FAST Staff, Route 11 was getting reduced usage along its Murchison Road leg, and Fayetteville State University no longer wants to pay the city to subsidize its students’ use of the city bus service.  The Route 11 change will be implemented in August.
