City OK’s delays for transit fare changes, parking program plan

By From page A4 | February 19, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Proposed fare changes for Fairfield and Suisun Transit, along with a request that the city staff develop a paid parking program of up to $5 a day at sites that include the Fairfield Transportation Center, were put on hold Tuesday by the Fairfield City Council.

“I just don’t think we’re ready for this,” Councilwoman Catherine Moy said.

She said the fare changes would cover seven years. The FAST local fare has been $1.50 since 2006.

Fairfield resident Ernest Melton said after the council decision to table the matter that if it cost $5 to park at the transportation center, he would not use the site. Melton now travels from Fairfield to San Francisco.
