A Foundation for Fare Equity

In Allegheny County, we have a transit fare system in which low-income people are paying more for same service.  We call on the Port Authority to enact these three simple policies to build a more equitable, efficient transit system:

  1. Reduce cash fares to $2.50, to match CONNECT Card fares
  2. Make all transfers free
  3. Implement fare capping (CONNECT card automatically converts to a weekly/monthly/yearly pass when the cost of the pass is paid in single uses)
