ORANGE, Calif. (KTLA) — The Orange County Transportation Authority is scheduled to vote Monday on an increase in bus fares for regular, day and monthly passes.

The fare boost would result in $6.4 million in additional revenue, according to an OCTA report.

A regular fare could go up 33-percent, raising the price from $1.50 to $2.

A day pass would rise from $4 to $5, while a 30-day pass which now costs $55, could go up to $69.

Officials say the fare increase every four years is needed to help cover operating costs.
