RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - You may soon have to pay an extra quarter to ride a GRTC bus.

According to the Times-Dispatch, the Richmond City Council could vote on a proposal to increase fares.

Mayor Jones supports the increase since there has not been an increase since 1993.

Under the proposal, riders would pay an extra 25 cents on most routes.

It may soon cost $1.50 for local routes, $2.00 for commuter express routes, and 75 cents for senior or disabled riders.

A vote could come June 22nd.
