Link at Tacoma Dome Station, by DW Honan

Last week, the King County Council decided to cancel the portion of Metro’s planned 2011 25-cent fare increase that applies to seniors and the disabled, holding the fare at 75 cents. The cost will be partially offset by raising the monthly pass cost for seniors from $18 to $27, bringing the breakeven point to 36 trips, just like other passes. KCDOT Spokeswoman Linda Thielke says the net revenue impact in 2011 will be a loss of $160,000.

In other news, ST has deferred the planned $1 fare on Tacoma Link indefinitely, due to out-of-date study assumptions.
