Transit agency holds off approving charter rates

Wednesday, May 27, 2015 — The Lassen Transit Service Agency decided to hold off on approving the charter bus rates until a later meeting.
    During the May 11 meeting, transportation planner Kelly Mumper discussed the charter rates for the 2015-2016 fiscal year.
    He said the rates were unchanged from the previous year, however, and were based on bus depreciation. Since three buses were lost and three were gained, there was no change in the charge.
    However, several board members questioned the charter service rates.
