ACCESS Public Transportation announced today it is adjusting its fares for riders beginning on Oct. 1 to put itself in-line with other Kansas public transportation programs. All rides that ACCESS provides in the City of Hays will increase from $1.50 per one-way ride to the new rate of $2. The Ellis County rides and rides to the Hays airport will increase from $3 per one-way ride to $4.

Riders in the City of Hays and Ellis County who have already purchased ride tickets, may still use those tickets without paying an additional charge until Oct. 1st.

However, after Oct. 1, all riders will have to supplement the current ride tickets with an additional 50 cents or one dollar fee when they utilize ACCESS Transportation.
