Door County successfully adopted fare increases for the Door2Door taxi service and the ADRC bus this week. Because the programs receive federal funding, the proposals were required to have a public comment period which occurred Tuesday morning. Door County Transportation Manager Pam Busch says there was a muted response.
The ADRC bus has not had a fare increase since its inception around 40 years ago. Still, doubling the price, even if justified, could have resulted in sticker shock. Busch says her new role was created by the county to make the hard decisions to make the programs financially sound. She is grateful for the public's understanding
