Final chance to comment on proposed fare increases
Valley Regional Transit (VRT) is seeking final public comment on proposed fare increases. The objective of the fare increases is to have fares cover most of the cost of services consumed. The last fare increase in Ada County was in 2003. In Canyon County, the last fare increase was in 2008.
Donating bikes to a good cause
Giving back to the community is a big part of the mission of Boise GreenBike. Among the many community projects Dave Fotsch and his GreenBike crew participate in are the Twilight Criterium GreenBike Race (prize money will be donated to the winners' favorite charities) to the annual Cranksgiving food drive held every November.
