Bus fare increases might not be high as orginally planned

YAKIMA, Wash. -- Prices for monthly bus passes here in Yakima might not jump as much as originally planned.

The transit district initially proposed hiking the price from $17 to $25.

Now, Yakima's city manager says the new proposal involves a five-dollar increase instead.

Normal one-way fares could still go up by 15 to 50 cents a ride.

Yakima City Council will decide the final rates next week.
