Riding Sacramento Regional Transit light rail and buses will be more expensive beginning tomorrow.
The new basic single fare will go up 25 cents. The basic daily pass will go up a dollar.
Riders will pay $10 more for monthly and semi-monthly passes.
Seniors, students, the disabled, and Medicare card holders will pay 10 cents more for a single fare and $5 more for a monthly pass.
The Sacramento Regional Transit District says the rate increases are needed to offset a $2.7 million budget deficit.
