Imperial Valley Press - - NEWS -

The 19 per­cent in­crease of the pub­lic tran­sit fare waits for the may­oral ap­proval, a city of­fi­cial said.

Mex­i­cali City Coun­cil­man Héc­tor Ibarra told La Crónica news­pa­per pub­lic tran­sit com­pa­nies must first com­ply with the four re­quire­ments set by the mayor’s of­fice.

Among the re­quire­ments tran­sit com­pa­nies are ob­li­gated to re­new at least 10 per­cent of buses within a year.

The fare would in­crease from 13 to 15.50 pe­sos, or from $0.72 to $0.86.

The coun­cil­man ex­pects all re­quire­ments to be ready by month’s end.
