STEP, Inc. announces that effective September 1, 2023, it will implement a fare increase in its mileage driven, zone-based fare structure for its Shared-Ride Transportation program. The fare increase is a result in increased fuel, labor, and other operational costs. This is the first increase in rates since 2014.
The fare increase is being made in consultation with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. The Fare Increase is needed to balance the cost associated with providing transportation services while continuing to provide and enhance the highest level of service possible.
Senior trips (Age 65+) sponsored by STEP’s Office of Aging program will continue to have their copays funded through STEP Office of Aging.
STEP Transportation provides door-to-door, Shared-Ride services Monday through Friday from 5:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. in response to the needs of residents and visitors of Lycoming and Clinton counties. More than 79,000 one-way rides were provided last year.
