PUBLIC HEARING: VVTA NTC Commuter Proposed Fare Change on Tuesday, February 16

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Victor Valley Transit Authority (VVTA) Board of Directors will hold a public hearing 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, February 16, 2016 during its regularly-scheduled board meeting at 17150 Smoke Tree Street, Hesperia, California 92345. The public hearing is regarding the reinstatement of the NTC Commuter fare for active military and Department of Defense (DOD) workers who receive transportation funding through the Mass Transit Benefit Plan (MTBP). As congress has set the transit fares, including the MTBP, at the same level as parking expenses, beginning January 1, 2016, the MTBP funding will increase to $255 per month. As a result, VVTA proposes reinstating the military pass fare at the $255 per month level with the monthly passes being purchased through VVTA vending machines to be placed strategically at Fort Irwin.
