April 8, 2013This paper was forwarded to the Public Transit Advisory Board (PTAB) in February 2013. The PTAB comprises representatives of the four jurisdictions within which FREDericksburg Regional Transit (FRED) provides service, other major financial partners/donors, social service and planning agencies and citizens at large. At its April 3, 2013, meeting the PTAB discussed fare options at length and adopted the following recommendations:
- Increase the base fare for regular FRED service from $0.75 to $1.00 per boarding.
- Increase the monthly pass for regular FRED service from $30.00 to $35.00.
- FRED Transit's new maintenance and training complex.
FRED's new maintenance and operations center are complete. The project entails the adaptive reuse of a variety of buildings on a 4.1 acre site in the Bowman Center off Tidewater Trail in Spotsylvania County.
English Construction Company has completed construction of the new facility.
